Welcome to The Woolly Lion. I started Dyeing Yarn because I could never find the colours I loved. Now I've grown to Spinning Fiber and soon to hand dyed raw fiber. I'm excited to offer OOAK items as well as fan favorites. If you see something that is sold out and want me to remake it, ask. I'm always happy to redo an item :) Enjoy!!

I don't usually like yellows and oranges, but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try out this hank. I am so glad I did! I love this combination!

These will be paired with a solid for the heels/cuffs/toes and made into crazy Christmas socks for me!!

These are great! I'm going to combine them with other minis from other sets for some crazy socks or a crazy sock head hat.

Purple and blue are my favorite colors, and I think the 'oops' part adds to the cuteness because the tiny bit of yellow complements them nicely! This yarn will become socks :)

This custom set of mini skeins, ordered for a teenage girl who's fighting cancer and who loves to knit, is just beautiful. The yarn is so beautifully dyed in rich colorways. Thank you so much!!

About

The History

The Woolly Lion was created out of a love of all things yarn and fibre. Quality and colour are my main goals. To create new and unique and often OOAK items using a high quality of Canadian milled yarns and wool roving. Each one of my yarns is carefully hand painted with acid dyes to ensure brightness and colour fastness. I dye every skein as if I was the one who would knit with it. In this way I can guarantee a superior quality that I know my customers are happy with.

I started Crocheting when I was young. Like alot of people I gave it up in high school and started again in College. I taught myself to knit about 10 years ago and have been doing it ever since. I find passion in alot of art including painting, beading, and fiber. So i tend to rotate from obsession to obsession. about a year ago I started dyeing yarn. From yarn I started spinning and thus started dyeing spinning fiber. This summer i will be bringing Natural dyed yarns and hand dyed raw fiber. Some wonderful new things to look forward to. Enjoy!!
