I told my wife I thought I'd get a scarf for our daughter for Christmas. She told me not to. She doesn't trust me picking out things like that. Like any good husband with suicidal tendencies I went ahead and ordered the scarf anyway. Nerdgirl Yarns processed and shipped my order immediately. When it arrived, much sooner than I expected, I showed it to my wife. She frowned, opened the package and examined the item with a very critical eye. Then she said 'Nope, this scarf is mine! You'll have to get something else for our daughter.' All I can say is that the Nerdgirl scarf was my wife's favorite Christmas present. She wears it almost every day.

A Love for Color

We're moving out of Etsy to consolidate everything in one shop, please visit us at and check out our Miscellanea section! Thanks!

In 2010, Nerd Girl Yarns was founded to bring the love of color to fiber artists the world over. Launched as an online shop, Nerd Girl Yarns brings indie hand dyed yarns and fibers to those who want more than big box yarn. Chaos Theory Goods was opened as a side venture on Etsy in 2011 as a way to explore additional textile arts with hand dyed silks, handspun yarn, and hand knit items.

As artists we love comfortable clothes with personal touches and attention to detail. We love color and we love texture. We love carefree cottons and luxurious silks and we can't get enough accessories that reflect our personalities. As self professed nerds we love math and formulas and we apply them to our art of creating hand dyed and hand made items daily. Chaos Theory Goods is a melding of our left brain and our right brain, it is predictable yet random. In 2014 we decided to expand the Chaos Theory Goods line with hand dyed ready to wear apparel that we would love to wear ourselves.

The Chaos Theory Goods line is for the maker and non-maker alike; it is for the artist inside all of us who wants to let their personality shine. Chaos Theory Goods is for the geek, the dreamer, the steampunk and the free spirit. Unique fashion for unique people - each and every clothing item is hand dyed or hand made at our fiber studio in Missouri.

Our Studio

Being energy efficient and environmentally conscious has always been important to us. We use energy star rated, low amperage, insulted commercial warming ovens to set our dyes. The added benefit to these is that it protects the yarn from overheating as over cooking textiles can damage the fibers. All of our dyes are non-toxic and low impact. We use no harsh chemicals in any step of our dye process.

Chaos Theory Goods is a ready to wear fashion label of Nerd Girl Yarns & located inside the NGY studio at 126 S. 2nd Street, Odessa, Missouri. Are you a maker? Check out our do it yourself supplies (hand dyed millspun yarn & fiber) online at Nerd Girl Yarns -

Nerd Girl Yarns loves handmades - even when they aren't made of yarn! Here you will find herbals, oils, gift sets, and handknits. All of our products are also available in our storefront in downtown Odessa, MO. We've named the Etsy shop Chaos Theory because it's so much more than yarn!
