Jon Dunn-Ballam


Easyknits.co.uk is a small indie yarn dyers based in South East London, UK. Started by Jon Dunn-Ballam in 2009, who is a knitter, crocheter, spinner, hand-dyer and sewist.

Jon, 40 years old,  began knitting at the age of 7, taught by his grandma, knitting throughout most of his youth, pausing to complete his studies in Graphic Design. In 2004 Jon moved London, following his career as a Graphic Designer, working for a magazine in the city.

Not knowing many people when he made the move to London Jon joined a knitting group that met every week in a different pub in the city, making friends and getting back into his knitting in a big way. 

After discovering a love for knitting socks, Jon marvelled at how, at the time, there was so little choice in bright and fun colourways in luxury knitting yarns, and so began tinkering and experimenting with dyeing his own, within a few months easyknits,co.uk was born. 

In the past 12 years easyknits,co.uk has become known for it's high quality, luxurious yarn bases dyed in an array of wild and wonderful colours across the spectrum, steadily growing and developing and changing. 

Today easyknits.co.uk has thousands of customers worldwide, wholesale stockists throughout Europe and has recently re-opened it's studio doors from a new location in the  Canary Islands, on the beautiful tropical island of Lanzarote.
