About Ovis Yarns

Bright – Bold – British wool

It is what I, Becky, am passionate about here at Ovis Yarns. I don’t believe that fabulous abstract colour and local wool should be mutually exclusive.

That is why every hand-dyed yarn I create is made from 100% British wool and completely processed within the UK. I use the highest quality acid dyes, and a range of techniques to create a work of art on each skein. Inspiration is drawn from all around me, from the amazing architecture of my home city, to days spent with Iron men on the beach, from my love of 90s grunge bands, to all the films and books I geek out on… colour is everywhere!

In April 2018 – I took my love of amazing yarns, and a drive to create a local yarn community in my home of Liverpool and opened a store – Ovis Yarns – at Red Brick Hangar in Liverpool’s new creative market in the Baltic Triangle. Moving across the city centre in August 2018 for more space, Ovis Yarns is now open at St Johns Market - A wee haven of colour and creativity.

Becky Pennington

Avid knitter, abstract artist, and former zoologist & museum monkey, I first mixed dye and splashed it on to wool back in 2012… I’d previously created and sold large Abstract oil paintings (those big canvases you see in cookie cutter offices – yeah them!) but as I became more and more obsessed with knitting, I decided I wanted to knit how I painted – so I began dyeing…
