Welcome to Eleanor Shadow.

I’m here to enhance your love for
hand dyed yarns, spinning fibres and
handmade knitting/crochet accessories.

My products are lovingly handmade in beautiful Edinburgh, Scotland. 
All yarns and fibres are hand dyed in small batches,
and my project bags sewn in my trusty machine here in my studio.

Newly Added

My aim is to thrill knitting, crochet and spinning enthusiasts from all walks of life
with unique woolly items and accessories. 

Here you will find an inclusive, welcoming platform where the love of wool unites us,
regardless of gender, ethnicity or background.
If you love hand dyed yarn, fun stitch markers and handmade bags, you’re in the right place.

“I’m not a knitter, but I’ve purchased other items from Eleanor before and been impressed with the quality of her work. These were purchased as gifts for friends who are knitters, and judging from how thrilled my Mom was with hers (she’s a knitter!) I think my friends will be thrilled too. Thanks Eleanor!”

“Eleanor is an absolute delight to work with. Great communication throughout and beautiful wool packaged with ‘little extras’. I know she had to put in a lot of work for this particular wool – much appreciated. I’ll be back!”

“As usual, an absolutely gorgeous item from this fantastic lady. The colours on the sock blank are so deep and rich. I am totally in love with Eleanor’s work and would recommend her shop to everyone.”
