Dream, dream, dream and it will happen!

This whole craftiness started as a young child with my nanny sitting with me and teaching me the art of knitting. I had a love for crafts or anything I could create with my own hands. It was natural to me, it was bred into me so how could I not be artistic!

When the opportunity came to dye yarn I didn't take it very seriously, in fact I ran thinking I cant do that! its too hard! (the artistic side of me was intrigued however)

Eventually I would succumb to the world of dyeing and I haven't looked back, I have loved every minute of it and I try to push myself every time I dye to more and more beautiful and diverse colorways.

Welcome to Yarn Ink {art on string}

Yarn Ink {art on string} is a small hand dyed yarn & fibre company based in a small town just outside of Calgary, Alberta. I create unique colorways on superior quality yarns & fibres.

Every skein and braid of fibre is hand dyed using different applications. All colorways are kettle dyed with professional acid based dyes and are set a minimum of two times to allow for complete saturation and absorption. Some colors may bleed slightly the first few times they're washed, this is normal and in no way means a loss of color. In each skein you may find some odd spots and speckles, these little speckles of beauty can't be controlled nor can they be created.

I mainly offer variegated colorways but continue to dabble a little bit into semi tonal colorways. I always try my best to photograph my colorways, but with different monitors, colors can vary greatly. I am an independent dyer and only dye in small batches. Please make sure to always purchase enough yarn for your projects so all the skeins are dyed during in the same dye lot. Yarns dyed in separate batches are not guaranteed to match and may vary greatly.
