Elliott and May

Katie May, founder of Elliott and May and mother to Elliott. 

As a creative Katie has always created and made things with her hands. When she became a mother she wanted a more grounded state of being and have a more organic approach to her creations. 

She started knitting when Elliott was born and found herself unable to stop. She knitted everywhere, home and in public. She ventured into the world of natural dyes, learning her skills from wise and knowledgeable dyers. It is truly special using plants to dye your own fabric. It connects you to earth and it makes you respectful and curious about the materials and processes used. 

In the Autumn of 2020, Elliott and May was born. A brand where Katie the owner can share her creations and her love for slow-making with a community of like-minded mothers and people. 

The yarn is South American Merino Wool (mulesing free), spun in Peru and naturally hand dyed in the UK.
