Hi, I’m Leonor, a mostly self-taught fibre artist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Eleanor Shadow is my creative alter-ego and I share my studio space with two very spoilt cats named Marshmallow and Kenya.
I like creating things to help you love your fibre hobby even more: I hand dye yarn in small batches, make batts for spinning and felting, and sew fun project bags.
My wools are sourced from ethical suppliers and I hand dye all my yarns using the most eco-conscious techniques at my disposal.
I’ve an academic background in Psychology and am a strong advocate of handcrafting for mental health – something I personally apply in my life to help with my anxiety disorder. I am also a huge supporter for equal rights for women and everyone, irrespective of background, gender or colour.
“Gorgeous batt, absolutely beautiful. Very well packaged and arrived surprisingly fast!”
“Beautiful soft yarn in my favourite colours. Fast shipping too.”
