This is more purple in person but is just so beautiful that it is the most beautiful skein of yarn I have ever purchased. The speckles are sooo pretty. I will be purchasing much more yarn in the future.

About

life, knittery, and the pursuit of happiness.

My name is Sonya Brazell and I live in a small city, nestled in the mountains of New Hampshire with my husband, Ryan, and three kids, Bella, Clara, and Casper. I can usually be found with a cat on my lap, knitting away until my eyelids feel droopy.

I have always been a creator in some form or another. I began knitting in 2007 and haven't looked back since. Learning to dye was like a culmination of all of my loves - yarn, color, paint, and the ability to create something tangible and functional. Every step of the process brings me so much joy and I put my heart into every skein. Yarn is my canvas, and I hope that comes through to you while you are working with my creations.

Woolen Boon is a true family business. My husband is invaluable in helping me get orders out. He preps for me, washes yarn, tags yarn, you name it. Sometimes he will even be the one responding to your emails! Bella and Clara are usually the ones making my business cards, or putting together the little envelopes that come with each order. They are learning how to skein and looking forward to earning a little commission per skein they twist up. ;) And Casper is my daily side kick. He puts the citric acid in each batch, and helps me sort colors. He knows every color way by heart. I feel so grateful to have my family living this dream right along with me.

There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing what you create with these yarn babies of mine. It is like a secret collaboration! Please feel free to tag your projects or your WIPs or even your stash shots with #woolenboon so I can peek into your process! I truly hope you love working with my yarn as much as I enjoyed making them for you. <3

I believe in the wonderfulness of wool, and working with it every day is such a privilege. I dye all of my yarn in my home studio, in small batches of 2 or 3 skeins per pan. I love giving each skein the attention it deserves. I also take a lot of consideration into the materials I use and the impact that it leaves around me.

My Superwash Merino wool bases are sourced from Argentina and Uruguay, and only sourced from farms that do not practice mulesing. My Non-Superwash are Peruvian Merino, sourced from small herds in the mountains. The shepherds work directly with the Peruvian mill to ensure they can get the best price possible for their fleece. I only source from companies in the United States who have vetted these sources and can ensure the fair and humane treatment of our sheepy friends.

I only use professional, heavy metal-free, acid dyes, that are wash and light fast. All dye is fully exhausted until the water runs clear before going down the drain. This is not only limits water-waste, but it also ensures that nothing icky is going into our water systems.

I use unscented Soak wool wash to make sure your yarn is clean and super soft before coming to you. It is scrumptious and I hope to carry it in my shop someday!

I always use the same recipes when replicating my color ways, but due to the nature of hand dyeing and the magic of speckles, the appearance of color ways and saturation can vary, even within the same dye batch, or across different bases. If you are using more than one skein of a color way for a project, I recommend alternating every two rows to best blend your skeins together.

If you are ordering items dyed-to-order, I'll give you a little insight as to how that process works. Every Sunday night I create a queue of orders from the week before, and that is how I create my list of color ways to dye for the week. So I am not dyeing order by order, but rather color way by color way of all the orders from the week prior. Make sense? I know how much people love to be able to order what they want whenever they want, so I promise to keep my dyed to order listings up as long as we are able to swing it volume-wise. :).

Additional policies and FAQs
All yarn is mill-spun, and then dyed by hand with professional, heavy metal-free, acid dyes and fully exhausted before rising. It is not unusual for light bleeding to occur on first wash, especially in highly saturated areas on the skein. As with all hand dyed yarn, even when dyed in the same dye lot, each skein is unique and can vary due to speckles and saturation. I will do my best to replicate the photo listed, but please expect some variations.

To keep your yarn looking so fresh and so clean, clean, please hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

I make every effort to photograph colors as accurately as possible but colors may appear differently on different monitors. I dye in small batches of 2-3 skeins, and each batch is photographed individually.
