Hello, and thank you for stopping by! My name is Bec (a.k.a. @handmadebec) and I am the maker and yarn lover behind Saltwater Yarns.

I love knitting and crocheting with yarn, especially wool, and a little while ago discovered the joy of hand dying my own. There’s only so much yarn I could dye for myself so I’ve decided to share some with fellow yarn lovers. As well as yarn, there are also some handmade items to discover, many of which are one-off’s!

I live in a beautiful part of the world with my family, on the coast in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. My hand dyed yarn is inspired by the ocean and coastline where I live, and also places around Australia that I’ve been lucky enough to visit.

I hope you can find a special skein here to add to your stash, or a special handmade item to keep or to gift.
