AnadaYarns is taking a short break
A Scandinavian girl in a wooly world
Hey there! Anåda is the small business I run from my little home studio in Northern California. All the yarn in this shop is carefully hand dyed by me.
A little bit about why I am here, sharing my creations with you.
I grew up in the forests of Northern Sweden and moved to the Northern California coast a few years ago. I learned how to knit very young by asking my mom to teach me, I was fascinated watching her make socks for us and with the idea of making your own clothes. I did not stick with knitting at that point but I re-learned in my early twenties. What really pushed me over to the ‘I can’t live without knitting’ side was when I had back problems about 6 years ago. I was stuck in my bed or couch for many hours of the day and the knitting allowed me by to just be in the moment as I healed physically. I also learned how to play the ukulele. Well. Sort of at least.
Knitting also helped in making the whole moving to a new place endeavor easier, because I found the most wonderful knitting group and friends. I can’t imagine my life without them! Although, I imagine all knitting groups are pretty awesome, what a great community to be part of. And so, with my knitting journey my interest in the fibers I was using also grew. I have always loved wool, so last year I started with some natural dyeing projects on wool. I am not a fan of plastic and try to avoid it whenever I can. Which is why I chose to dye yarns that are nylon free and non-superwash.
I am proud to use sustainable, eco-friendly, and local products whenever possible. What about packaging? I did put some thought into that, which is why I use compostable mailers made from corn starch for shipping yarn safely to your home.
To see new and coming colorways, what I’m currently knitting, and a bit of everyday life, find me @anada_yarns on Instagram.
