Stewart Yarns is a business started with love and run with passion. I started out under the name Kelpie Knits in July 2019, but rebranded as Stewart Yarns in August 2020.
It is a one-woman operation run by me, Eilidh MacRae, from my kitchen. I'm based in the Scottish Highlands, where I live with my husband and my dog, Odin. If you'd like to see more of him, I post about him regularly on my Instagram feed @stewartyarns.
My yarns are dyed in small batches and each one is unique. My colourways are inspired by the stunning Highland landscape; the rich history and folklore of my home; and my amazing family that I love so much.
I love to knit, it's one of the only things I can always rely on to calm me down and de-stress me after a long day. If I can help you do that, with yarn that you love, then I've done my job. I'd love to learn how to crochet, especially if it meant I could make myself a Granny Stripe Blanket.
I also love to read, draw and listen/watch anything True Crime-related. I'm obsessed with Animal Crossing. And a life without coffee and chocolate just wouldn't be worth living!
