For many years before she started the Safe Haven Project Val ran a successful knitwear company in Scotland. She took a break from it while she was setting up the project, but recently her creative muse has returned and she is once again designing, and with the help of some friends, producing garments. They are for sale in a few outlets in the North of Scotland, and direct from Val.
The photos above are examples of ones that have already been sold, but if you are interested in purchasing something similar you can contact Val to discuss by phone (01651892832). All of the money raised from the sale of the items goes towards the funding of the project.
Val buys the materials required, and also receives donations , and she and her friends give their time and skills for free. The garments are made with a variety of different yarns and fabrics including wool, acrylic and cashmere.
