Debbie McCann is the designer/maker behind Wee Yarn Designs, based in Newtownards, County Down, which she founded in 2013 after a successful career in textile design and fashion retail management.
Debbie is an honours graduate of the Ulster University’s school of Fashion & Textile Design and specialises in the design and creation of hand-knitted fashion pieces, home accessories and bespoke baby knits.
She also designs and makes Dorset buttons which she uses to create unique pieces of jewellery. Debbie holds workshops in this historic craft.
All her creations are hand-crafted in Northern Ireland using, where possible 100% natural Irish yarns.
Using an earthy colour palette based on the use of yarns such as merino, silk, cashmere, cotton and linen Debbie`s unique hand-crafted accessories exhibit a clear contemporary edge while still acknowledging use of traditional hand-crafted skills.
