Google Analytics

UPDATED OCT. 24/2022
I have removed all Google Analytics tracking from this website.
I have replaced this with Matomo Analytics software as this provides better user privacy.
All data is stored privately on my website.

IP address location data is anonymized. I only see the country that a visitor is from and not a specific location.

I use Matomo Analytics data in order to provide me with an understanding about what types information and pages you visit, in order that I can revise content to meet user needs. I do not have access to any personal information about you. I am using this information to help detect which pages need updating (there are lots since this website has grown significantly in the past 20 years).
If you have any questions or concerns please contact me.

You may also Opt Out of all tracking on this website if you wish. Just click on the Opt Out option at the bottom of this page.

If you are concerned about your privacy, you may wish to change your search engine from Google to something more private such as DuckDuckGo

Website Cookies

There may still be some Cookies that run on this website, that I am not aware of. You have the option to Accept or Reject them. I suggest that you select only the necessary cookies – as I do not like tracking much either.


I have become more concerned lately regarding internet privacy and tracking.
Therefore, I have now removed all Google Advertising that was running on my website. The Google ads helped to pay for my website costs.

I am continuing to include affiliate advertising for Amazon Books and Craft Supplies as I think these are useful to the weaver and craftsperson. Most of the links to books, etc are text-based only. There may be a few display ads. No personal information is passes on to Amazon.

I also include links to used equipment, fibres and yarns via EBay. Again, these links are text-based only and do not pass on other information to EBay.
Ebay Partner Nework

There are also some links to my Paivatar Yarns or Etsy websites where I sell some of my crafts and supplies.

The commissions that I receive from these affiliate links help to pay for some of my website running costs.

I have also added a Donation option. If you find the information useful, I would appreciate if you could donate a small sum (to buy me a coffee or a ball of wool).

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
