Helping to make the world a brighter and cozier place!

It's almost ironic that I was surrounded by yarn, crocheting, and knitting my entire life as it was one of my mother's hobbies, but I've just recently discovered that this craft is my passion and purpose. After years of refusing to be taught, I was begging to learn as an adult.

I began by crocheting tiny, uncomplicated projects for my infant daughter. Then I moved onto beanies for my son and nephews. Next I tackled an enormous afghan for my husband. I was hooked, pun intended. Recently, my mother has taught me to knit as well.

I love squishy yarn and the process of creating beautiful hand dyed yarns. I'm always trying to create new colorways and trying out new methods. I also love organization, so making project bags fits right in with my personality.

Item Care: Please be sure to read the care instructions carefully for hand dyed yarn.

All yarn is kettle dyed and no two skeins will be exactly alike, even if they were dyed at the same time. There may be variation within one skein as well, especially in a kettle dyed yarn.

Colorways are recreated as close to the original as possible, but they will not be uniform like a commercially dyed yarn. Also be aware that different bases take color differently. Colors may vary from dye lot to dye lot.

Dyed to Order photos are a representation only. I do my best to represent the colors accurately in photos, but please be aware that colors may look different on different screens.

It is important to note that the speckled yarns, while using the same colors on multiple skeins of the same colorway, are dyed in a random fashion. No two skeins hold exactly the same speckle patterning, and there will be strong variations between multiple skeins and within each skein itself.
