Hi my name is Marieca (its an anagram of America…honest). I love history, reading and all things woolly. I returned to the world of woollen textiles through experimental archaeology when I was asked to devise a tablet weaving session for the local Young Archaeologists’ Club. Giddy with mastering this ancient form of weaving I went on to re-vitalize the skills of crochet and knitting I learnt from my mother and before I knew it I was setting up a wool craft group and having a go at anything woolly.
I live in the beautiful Lake District together with my ancient spaniel and whichever of my grown-up children has fluttered back to the nest for a visit.
