Dawn Lim

Spinner and Weaver

Contemplative, practical, stylish.

I am descended from a long line of ancestors dating back hundreds of years who were weavers and spinners in England. Their heritage continues through me as I take pure wool and turn it into yarn with the techniques and equipment that remain true to the craft’s origins.

But that’s only the start as I’m able to turn the wool into clothing such as coats, jackets and skirts that will last for decades. It’s a sustainable practice and the complete opposite to clothing throwaways that are a waste of money and time.

Dawn Lim has been spinning wool for over 30 years and has shared her knowledge and insights of this agelong craft for decades.
