naturally dyed yarns from the Berlin/Brandenburg region.

Welcome to my Internet pages! For several years I have now been researching the possibilities of dyeing with natural dyes in my workshop south of Berlin. At the moment my focus is on dyeing yarns for hand knitting which are available under the label of TULLIVER YARN. I never tire of creating new colours and of improving the dyeing process. On these pages I will explain a few things about the process and the materials used. Have a look around, if you like!

JEWELS is the third book of the European Nature book series created by Making Stories to share their passion for natural, local, breed-specific, European yarns, beautiful knitwear designs and the stories of the amazing makers who enable and inspire them to create magic with our own hands.


JEWELS includes 12 modern knitwear designs for the colder seasons on this planet. From luscious colourwork yokes to drapey everyday sweaters, from a shawl as cosy as a hug to mittens designed to keep your hands toasty warm, all the pieces in this book are designed to be both enjoyable to knit and wearable for years to come. JEWELS wouldn’t be a Making Stories publication though without the stories that inspire us to do our work: We’ve included profiles for every single maker involved in this book, be it designer or yarn company, as well as two fantastic articles on yarn (by Katie Green) and colour substitution (by Dianna Walla) and a conversation on colour between Melody Hoffmann, a favourite designer, and yarn dyer Paula Goosen of Moel View Yarn.

I have put together some Spinel Mittens Kits in different colour combinations for you to choose from.

Have a look!
