Caora is an artisan spinning fibre producer in Glasgow, Scotland, run by Dot W. Fine fibres are carefully selected and blended by hand to give you the best possible materials for your spinning and felting. We love producing beautiful semi-solid, jewel tones; subtle gradients and luxurious blends of natural, undyed fibres.
Dot also produce knitting patterns as Littletheorem. You can find her on Etsy, Ravelry, Twitter and Facebook under this name.
In real life, Dot works as a secondary Maths teacher in Glasgow. When she isn’t working (or knitting or spinning or carding), she loves climbing hills, cooking, and learning languages (gaelic is her current language of choice).
All photography is by Dot’s lovely fiance. He also runs an Etsy shop selling his work: East Coast Photo.

I am so glad to have discovered your website- the batts you create are gorgeous! My name is Paddy Lynch, and I am a felt-maker from North Carolina. My husband and I plan to be in Scotland in mid-April for a wedding, and would love to learn about the fiber arts in your country. The trip is still in the making, but any recommendations about artists like yourself and/or sheep farms that we could visit would be most appreciated.

Thanks so much for your kind words! Scotland is a great place for fibre arts at the moment so you should find lots to see and do on your trip. Whereabouts in Scotland will you be based? I’d certainly be happy to give you my opinion on some good places to visit! To get the best advice on where to go however, I suggest you visit the “Scot Knits” group on the forums at Ravelry. There are lots of local fibre artists who regularly post there. The url is http://www.ravelry.com/groups/scot-knits.
