Soft, silky hand-dyed yarns with hand-crafted stories

What in the world does blue skin have to do with yarn? Or anything else, for that matter?

Check out this poem by Shel Silverstein:

She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by--
And never knew.

I spent years hiding my blue skin, believing I was the only one like me. When I finally realized we all have our own shades of blue skin, I began the long process of taking off my masks and letting my blue show. I love watching others take off their own masks, and I honor them by collecting their stories. My Story Bags are a fairly new addition to my store, and I am excited to be able to tell stories through my work in a unique way.

The world is full of hand dyers and makers. All of them have amazing colorways and products to offer, each with a story to tell. And I've learned that for every story, there is a heart who needs to hear it. Perhaps my handful of colors are the same. They are, to me, simply the combination of my love of yarn and my passion for words.

There are a few things to know. First, my yarn colors are created by hand, which means that every single skein is different; if you're using more than one in a project, I recommend alternating skeins every few rows. Second, I do my best to rinse out any excess dye, but if you want to be sure, feel free to give your yarn a quick rinse before using it.

    My mom taught me to crochet and knit as a young girl, and when I discovered as an adult the world of designer and hand-dyed yarns, I realized that I loved the yarn itself even more than making things with it. So I decided to make my own!
