My name is Debbie McCann and I am the designer/maker behind Wee Yarn Designs. I established the business in 2013 after a career in textile design and later, fashion retail and marketing.
Back in the early nineties I graduated from the Ulster University, Belfast where I studied Fashion & Textile Design, specialising in Constructed Textiles. I now design and create hand knit accessories, with ranges for adults, children and babies.
After some experiments making jewellery with yarn I discovered the Dorset Button…. I soon became hooked and as well as designing a range of Dorset Button jewellery I run workshops in this fascinating, heritage craft.
Using an earthy colour palette based on the use of yarns such as merino, silk, cashmere, cotton and linen I like to think that my hand-crafted accessories exhibit a clear contemporary edge while still acknowledging use of traditional hand-crafted skills.
