Coming from a long line of creative women, seamstresses, embroiderers and home makers, ‘nellie and eve’ is named after Helen Hickman grandmothers. Based on a hill in rural Carmarthenshire, south west Wales UK, Helen uses locally sourced fleeces, usually from the sheep that happily graze the fields surrounding her workshop, which she washes and prepare by hand from their raw state through to the finished item. The production of each piece uses a traditional spinning wheel to spin yarn, a loom to weave, an old Singer sewing machine or a simple crochet hook.
