About me

My name is Laia, and I am the one after Sóc una troca.

Women in my family have always been around needle arts, by knitting, crocheting, cross stitching, or sewing their own clothes. I couldn’t be different!

Since a few years ago the crisis took away my job, I’ve devoted myself to wool. As a musicologist, research is my way of understanding things, and that’s why I’ve tried to learn all the historic spinning techniques, I’ve researched into natural dyes to develop my own recipes based on those used early in my country, I’ve dissected all the yarns my hands could catch… as you see, I’ve tried to know everything about this material I love: wool!

Sóc una troca is the fruit of all this work, I hope you’ll enjoy it!
