Ruth was a founder member of The Wool Clip and has knitted for as long as she can remember. She raises three different breeds of sheep on the family farms and fells near Hesket Newmarket - Shetland, Swaledale and Blue Faced Leicester.
Ruth not only spins their fleeces but also knits to create sweaters, cardigans, hats, scarves and small items. She also produces knitting kits and dyes wool and fleeces. Her inspiration comes from the beautiful countryside surroundings.
