Hello I’m Beth, owner and dyer behind Beehive Yarns. Having been a knitter and crocheter for many years I was itching to have a go at dyeing yarn myself. My lovely husband bought me a kit and in summer 2017 Beehive Yarns was launched. Suffice to say our home is now overrun with yarn and the whole family are very much part of the ‘Hive!
Vintage style is a constant source of inspiration. I’m a life-long 60’s enthusiast and love all things mid-century. For me the name Beehive Yarns was an obvious choice, it just popped into my head all of it’s own accord. My yarn bases are named after some of my favourite 60’s icons: these ladies have been an inspiration to me and I’d like to think they wouldn’t mind my playful reference to them (and their hair!) here. Here’s to Dusty Springfield, Brigitte Bardot, Audrey Hepburn et al!
I’d love to see what you make with the yarn, if you’re an Instagram addict like me then please tag Beehive Yarns in your photos!
