What got you interested in your art of choice?
My grandmother attempted to teach me to crochet when I was 8, but like most children I had interests elsewhere. Her lessons just didn’t stick. I re-taught myself to crochet several years ago and fell in love with knitting shortly after. Dyeing yarn has been a growing passion. I love experimenting with different techniques and colorways. My belief is that every project deserves the perfect yarn.
Do you have a favorite item or colorway?
I’m a fan of instant gratification projects. As a result, I love our worsted and bulky weight yarns. They’re just so soft and squishy! I can’t really pick one favorite colorway though. I love them all!
What is something you strive to offer the fiber arts community?
We are committed to creating beautiful hand dyed and hand painted yarns crafted in small batches for all your knitting, crocheting and weaving needs.
What is your fiber arts superpower?
My superpower would have to be my ability to teach myself any skill I need to know. I haven’t met a project I couldn’t handle. I also love to pass that knowledge on to others. My friends and family have all benefited from this over the years.
