About

"I am thrilled that everyone who purchases a fibre creation from me knows they are getting a lovingly hand crafted item that meets their highest expectations.”

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!”
