Create a more colorful world...

Living Dreams Yarn and Fiber will help you unleash your inner artist!

Be inspired and express yourself with our hand dyed yarn, colorful roving and natural fibers for beginning crafters as well as experienced fiber enthusiasts.
LIVING DREAMS YARN commissions independent dye studios and local fiber mills to produce small batches of our "Private Label" fibers. Your purchase of our products directly supports local farms, small textile mills and fiber artisans here in the US Pacific Northwest.

Colorful. Exquisite. Unique.
In our shop you will find products of the highest quality for knitting & crochet, spinning, needle and wet felting, doll making, weaving and embellishing:
- exclusively cruelty free fiber; either natural, hand dyed, plant dyed or Oeko-Tex standard
- a broad palette of Merino and Silk/Merino pencil roving yarn for boldly textured home and fashion knits
- Heirloom quality hand-dyed yarn in a range of weights
- certified organic, cellulose and vegan fibers for discerning spinners
- colorful super bulky yarns for beginning knitters who love to knit with big needles and see quick results
- fun fiber for crafting with kids and doll making
- patterns and kits for any skill level

About us:
LIVING DREAMS YARN is a small family owned company and has been in business since 2001. We made our home in the picturesque foothills of Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington USA (the other Washington in the upper left hand corner, close to Canada) where we celebrate a lifestyle that is in keeping with our values… in other words we built a log home in the woods and live off the grid - hence the name LIVING DREAMS.

When we first started we used to joke that we were doing business in a manner that was decidedly more “cottage” than “cottage industry”. Today LIVING DREAMS YARN has grown into a large network of talented fiber artist, local farmers and breeders, independent mills and dye studios, designers, knitters and pattern makers. Business is still personal to us – we know our vendors, collaborate on ideas and enjoy working together.
We are most proud of the fact that we are bringing income opportunities to so many women artisans and business owners in our rural community.

You can expect professional and courteous customer service at all times.
All orders are packaged with care and labeled by hand.
We ship fast – usually within 24 hours.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact us - we speak English and German.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting our shop. Happy Crafting, Tanja
