Announcement Due to lots of upcoming changes in my professional life, I will not fill custom orders for the next year. In order to continue my commitment to lovingly hand-dyed yarn and prompt service, I will only sell skeins that are ready to ship. Sorry for any inconvenience!

This yarn is literally perfection. I can't wait to make some cozy socks!!!!
Welcome to Bora Knits, offering hand-dyed yarn and handmade knitwear!
I'm getting my PhD in Immunology, and I make hand-dyed yarn using various hand painting and kettle dye methods. I'm an avid knitter, and not ashamed to admit I'm a bit of a yarn snob! I bring my passion for beautiful color combinations and the precision of my lab work to my dye works. Located in the foothills of the Appalachians, I draw a lot of inspiration from the beauty around me. But I also draw from my own imagination a lot, especially in the winter when I wish I was somewhere warmer!
All my yarns and knitwear are made in a smoke free home, but I do have my Pippa Pup around! While I store all things knitting in closed containers and Pips isn't in the dye studio when I'm working, please buy with caution if you have allergies.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, comments, interest in custom dye orders, or commission knits! Also if you have questions about yarn bases, please contact me.
For more of my knitting and yarns, see my Instagram at boraknits.
Around the web
Hi! I'm Stephanie and I run the eponymous Bora Knits hand-dyed yarn shop. I absolutely love fiber crafts, and I bring my passion for knitting and quality yarn into my dyeing to make all my original colorways.
My goal is to provide you high-quality, beautiful yarn that reflects my love of all things knitting! I dye yarn in tiny batches, so each batch will vary a bit. So be sure to purchase all the yarn you think you'll need for a project at one time so I can ensure they'll be from the same dye batch.
Don't hesitate to convo me if you have any questions, comments, or requests. I'd love to hear from you :)
