About us

On December 1st 2016 I started my business called Handprint by Céline. After a yarn dyeing workshop I attended at Ja, Wol (Rotterdam) earlier that year I fell in LOVE with dyeing yarn. Besides yarn I also decided to make and sell progress keepers and handmade gifts. 

Handprint by Céline is a one woman business run by me! Hi, I'm Céline born in 1990 in The Netherlands, and lived in Ridderkerk my whole life. When I got diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2010 and after a few years of medical rehabilitation I was looking for something to do to get my hands from being less stiff. That was when I found knitting! I started with easy straight knitting, scarfs, blankets and after a year found that crochet was also something I enjoyed. And another year later added spinning to this mix of fiber related hobbies. We're now around 2014 and I wanted a bit more of a challenge and went looking for patterns on the internet and came across Ravelry, knitting fairs and LYS's. That's when I really started to become part of the knitting community and went exploring more. 

And now we're here, 6 years into a indie yarn business and still enjoying this fiber filled lifestyle!
