Meet the maker
Beth Renton studied textile design at Heriot Watt University and set up Wee Beauties after graduating. Wee Beauties specialises in making beautiful, high quality, machine knitted accessories made of 100% super soft merino lambswool The designs are inspired by travel and nature with bright colours and bold patterns. Pattern inspiration comes from everyday life in Scotland for example plants and places around me. Reducing waste and being a sustainable business matters greatly to me. The raw material is merino lambswool which is produced in Yorkshire and then shipped to Scotland where it is knitted into the final products. When you buy from Wee Beauties you are supporting the British economy and a business with a low carbon footprint. Beth hates to waste any precious wool so uses my scraps to make smaller items like badges and earrings.
