#20 - Julia (Jules) Billings @ Woollenflower on natural yarn dyeing and sustaining your business

In my podcast A Smaller Life, I talk to makers and business owners in my industry (and sometimes beyond) about making conscious choices and growing your brand by actually going smaller.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Julia (Jules) Billings and her business Woollenflower. 
Jules is a yarn dyer with an expertise in natural dyeing, she teaches dyeing and knitting techniques and makes re-used tweed pouches. She's such a positive force. I talk to her about the process of natural yarn dyeing and how it can be done responsibly. We chat about the dip in sales caused by the lockdowns  - I loved listening to her positive message - and we look ahead at what's coming.
