Katy Mellor is a designer-maker producing knitted accessories. She is inspired by her natural environment, the beautiful found textures and colours of the Cumbrian countryside, where she comes from. These themes are translated into Katy’s work through the yarns and colour combinations selected.
She gives traditional knitting techniques her own contemporary twist, creating items with a vintage feel. Her designs invoke notions of comfort, warmth and luxury.
Her designs are created using an ethical and environmentally friendly mindset. She uses all natural yarns that are sourced and knitted locally, in the North West.
Included in the range of accessories designed for men and women are scarves, mittens and socks. She also makes accessories for the home. Embellishments are added to the knitting creating individual pieces.
