I'm a homeschooling mom raising four amazing kids in the forests of northern Minnesota and I'm passionate about all things yarn! Whether it's spinning, dyeing, knitting or crocheting, I do it all.
My yarn journey started, as most do, many years ago. I have fond memories of my mother teaching me to knit at a young age.
After college, I picked up the needles -- or really the crochet hook -- again and started crocheting unique gift items for child and baby. It was no coincidence that this coincided with the birth of my first child and resulted in lots of cute hats, booties, and all kinds of goodies for the rest of my kiddos.
A few years ago, I returned to more serious knitting and found myself becoming more and more interested in all aspects of the yarn process -- from start to finish. I started spinning and working with different fibers, learning more and more every day. It was about this time that I also started working with natural dyes made from materials found in my own backyard. Living in the beauty of the great northwoods has it benefits!
I make Yarn
I focus on hand dyed skeins of rich, vivid colors that are bold and eye-catching. As any fiber artist knows, yarn is all about expression and creativity. So as I've continued my yarn journey, I've changed techniques, patterns, and color palettes yet common threads exist throughout. I've always sought to learn and explore while producing high-quality items that reflect the time and love I put into every item. I don't take any shortcuts and many skeins go through the dyeing and over-dyeing process many times. It's a lot more work that way but I only make things I want to buy, wear and share.
I'm committed to providing you the same high quality hand dyed yarn that I use at home. There's no big box store here; just me in the woods, making yarn for you! If you have any questions, ideas or suggestions, please drop me a line using the contact page and I'll get back to you personally
