Jan from The Crafty Therapist

I'm an Eco Crochet Designer and Natural Therapist striving to tread more gently on Mama Earth. I live in the beautiful Scottish Highlands, with my husband and three boys, along with our big fluffy cat. We strive to be as plastic free as possible and reuse whatever we can. I even reuse bread bags by turning them into Plarn (plastic yarn) to crochet bags with! I have a tutorial on my blog on how to make plarn and plan to publish my bag patterns.I mainly use natural products, recycled and eco friendly yarns that don't harm the earth, where-ever possible.Through sharing my experiences, on my blog and social media, of using greener yarns and products and designing crochet patterns using these yarns, I hope to encourage you to consider eco friendly choices too. Not just for crafts but for all our everyday buying decisions too. You can find my crochet patterns on my blog, Ravelry, LoveCrafts and published in Happily Hooked Magazine.
