Scottish Textile Designer Catriona McLaughlin makes beautiful and unique handmade Knitwear Accessories from Merino lambswool, cashmere and other luxurious natural fibres.
The work I create is textile craft based within a specialist area of embroidery; I place myself under the category of a designer maker as I enjoy producing crafts, which can be worn and indulged by clients.
