Janet runs The Threshing Barn from her workshop here in Reeth.

As a retired sheep farmer she loves the challenge of taking local wools, dyeing and processing them into finished products as well as kits for weaving and needle felting. Reflecting the changing seasons in Swaledale, Janet’s colour palette is inspired by her love of the natural world. Yarns hand-dyed by Janet are also used to knit a selection of small items from lavender sachets, socks, hats and scarves. Seasonal craft kits are a speciality. The Threshing Barn is an Aladdin’s cave of supplies for spinners, weavers, knitters, felt makers and textile artists and is a must if you are in Reeth.

Janet is one of our founding members.   She lives in Carperby and runs her craft workshop in Reeth in Swaledale
