Cat and Sparrow was started by two fibre loving friends in Melbourne, Australia in 2013. Cathy and I, Rachael, met through a shared love of spinning, and we discovered our passion for colour and texture together by experimenting with dyes and blends.  When I moved back to the UK in December 2014, we didn’t want it to be the end of our partnership, or of the business we created together.  We still inspire each other, try new things together and aim to create irresistible fibres and yarns for everyone to enjoy.

My home is my studio, and it’s where I do all my dyeing, spinning, knitting and weaving.  I’m a regular at Frome Independent market on the first Sunday of every month, and you can also find me at various wool shows throughout the year.

I love to chat about all things woolly and can happily do so for hours. If you have any questions, drop me a line at rachael@catandsparrow.co.uk.
