So lovely to see you here, I am Marta Chapman or Martushka to my friends and family.

Originally from Poland, I now live in London with my husband, two teenage children and two pesky Jack Russells Rocky and Poppy.

Having been knitting and crocheting what seems like my entire life, dyeing yarn seemed like a natural progression. From the vibrancy of colour to delicate hues and undertones in shade, my heart was stolen.

I knew there was no possibility of me ever stopping, but what do I do with all the yarn? I decided to take a plunge and open an online shop.

Martushka Yarns was born.

Dyed in small batches and individually using only ethically sourced yarns from reputable cruelty- free farms and mills around the world each skein is one a kind and unique.

You can follow my yarn adventures on Instagram on  @martushkaknits, and subscribe to my podcast on YouTube the topics include: knitting, sometimes crocheting tea and life in general.
