Denise Burrows


Meet our new crochet and arm knitting tutor, Denise Burrows, from The Natural Yarn Barn.

Having enjoyed a career as managing editor on hobby, fine art and antiques publications, Denise launched The Natural Yarn Barn recently to follow a long-held creative passion and teach others the relaxing and mindful crafts of knitting and crochet that her mum and grandma taught her many years ago.

Using 100% natural luxury yarns – like alpaca, pure wool, cotton and vegan bamboo – she now spends her time designing all her own knitting and crochet patterns and has just set up an Etsy shop to sell her natural, contemporary home decor items – from handy baskets made from recycled T-shirt yarn to large throws in pure wool, sustainable-beauty products made from organic cotton to cosy beanies, cowls and cushions in soft baby alpaca.

Featured online by We Are Knitters and the T-shirt Yarn Shop, Denise’s creations are all made in soft, neutral tones and combine eco-friendly yarns with modern style.

Whether you are a complete beginner or have previous crochet experience and would like a refresher, or you need help to tackle that project you’ve been wanting to for ages, we will be running a class for you – please ask for more details.

We also sell some of Denise’s handmade crochet items in our gift shop, perfect unique gifts. Just pop in and have a browse.
