About

Dyed In The Wool, from Spincycle Yarns

Spincycle Yarns is a two-woman operation established in 2004. Rachel and Kate produce luxurious yarns, hand-dyed and spun into small batches of perfection. We use local fibers as well as luxurious, sustainable fibers from across the globe. Each of our handspun skeins is made in our tiny, fuzzy studio, with a (narrow) view of Bellingham Bay!

Dyed In The Wool is the product of our desire to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn.We collaborated with a nearby woman- owned fiber mill on Washington’s coast. This collaboration ensures that our yarn maintains the color artistry of our original handspun product. Because we dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole. Color changes are always brilliant, never repetitive.

We spinsters are two self-taught, DIY fiber mavens who found each other after landing, independently and quite accidentally, in The City of Subdued Excitement, also knows as Bellingham, Washington. Kate found home here after a road trip from Ohio that was abruptly but fortuitously halted by the exhaustion of her gas money. Rachel hitchhiked from her home state of Mississippi out to California, but was pulled further and further north by the increasingly green and lush scenery - and the near absence of mosquitos! Both of us came out west with just the bare necessities, which somehow included a spinning wheel each. One short conversation - in the bulk isle of the food coop - later, Spincycle Yarns was born. Now, nine years later, our tendencies toward wanderlust are somewhat tempered by motherhood and urban homesteading responsibilities, but we still love this job!

Our handspun yarns and original knitwear designs have been featured in Spin Off, Stitch n' Bitch 2007 calendar, Intertwined by Lexi Boeger, Knit.Wear, Vogue Knitting, BUST, and knitty.com (four times!). Knitwear designers who have featured our yarns include Ann Weaver, Andrea Rangel, Myrrhia Resneck and Stephen West.

    Rachel grew up in southern Mississippi, where it is just straight up too damn hot to knit with wool. Luckily, she hitchhiked across the country and landed in Bellingham, Washington, where knitting, dyeing and spinning make a lot more sense.

Our new line of designer yarns, Dyed In The Wool, is the product of our desire to
merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced
millspun yarn. We collaborated with a nearby woman- owned fiber mill on Washington’s coast. This collaboration ensures that our yarn maintains the color artistry of our original handspun product. Because we dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole.

Additional policies and FAQs
We are happy to discuss custom colorways. Just convo us, but remember that dyeing is not like painting. We have some control over shades and blending, but there will be surprises. Custom orders may take anywhere from 1-2 months. We can dye your fiber fairly quickly, but sometimes the mill is super busy and can't get to the spinning straight away!

We use Jacquard acid dyes. These are lightfast, non-toxic dyes. However, with brighter colors, there may be a slight loss of color in the rinse water.
