We are Clive and Laurence, a husband and wife team and we formed Gongcrafts from our wee croft house in a remote village nestled along
Scotland’s most northerly coast in the county of Sutherland.
We are very excited to be attending our second Perth Festival of Yarn. Last year was such a joyous, colourful and friendly experience.
We will be bringing to Perth our vibrant range of botanically hand dyed luxury yarns which have a lustre and texture which, we are sure, will
have your hearts racing! We have been experimenting with a few new natural fibres too; and are very excited about the results we have
We also have some new colourways available in our handspun mixed fibre yarns which we are excited about.
These will also be available as 50 gram batts for all you handspinners and felters out there.
We are passionate about the extraordinary landscape in which we live and many of our works are inspired by the colours and places we explore here. We are keen that all our products “tread lightly upon the Earth”, hence our adventures in botanical dyes and a desire that all our
materials are from a sustainable source.
As a truly sustainable way to clothe ourselves, all things wool are our biggest passion from hand-spinning our vibrant mixed fibre “art yarns” to hand-dyeing standard gauge knitting yarns using locally harvested plant material and botanical extracts from sustainable sources.
All textile products we offer for sale use our yarns.
We create with love and hope our customers receive the same joy in their purchases that we experience in their making.
Please come and join us at the Fair. We look forward to meeting you.
Clive and Laurence,
