Sadly tied to an office job to pay the bills, Freyalyn lives in West Yorkshire with both town and woods on the doorstep. Her interest in ancient tales and technology and folklore led to a degree in Archaeology that has not helped with job-seeking at all, but isn’t regretted in the slightest. Her knowledge and skill in textile arts go back more years than she cares to remember, and somehow there are three spinning wheels, two large dogs, plus cats, in a small flat!

Spinning is a fundamentally human thing, and something that we have been doing since far into the ancient past.
