My obsession with knitting and spinning evolved into dyeing experiments a few years ago. I love working with colour! I use colourfast acid dyes and hand dye each skein individually with care. My colour combinations are inspired by art, culture, and the prairie landscape surrounding me.

    I have a fine arts and design background, which might be what compels me to work with dyes, colour and texture. I'm utterly obsessed with yarn and fibre and there isn't a day I'm not dyeing, spinning or knitting.

Welcome to doodles in string!

Everything is hand dyed / spun / designed by me. I have a smoke-free but dog-friendly home, though the dog doesn't knit (yet) so she's not allowed near the yarn and fibre.

I hand dye all of my yarn and fibre in very small batches, but I'm happy to take custom orders if you want a larger quantity. Custom orders will take approx. 4-6 weeks to ship after the order is placed.

I always try to make my colours as consistent as possible, but they can vary between batches. So be sure to buy all that you need at once, or let me know if you are planning a large project. I also recommend alternating skeins on larger projects to avoid colour pooling. I use professional grade light and colour fast acid dyes and I rinse thoroughly, but yarn and fibre may still bleed colour during the first wash.

Colours are represented as accurately as possible, but monitors may vary.

If you have any questions, comments, or problems please don't hesitate to contact me.
