About Neatnik Yarns

Like many Angela, the human behind Neatnik Yarns, found her way to the fibre arts through a circuitous path. Growing up, she dabbled in knitting, but never got beyond the beginner scarf phase. Later in life, as a mom to two young boys, and desperate for something to do while watching Disney movies for the 100th time, she discovered crochet.

In 2018 she happened to take a yarn dyeing class with established fibre artist Holly Aamot of False Holly Atelier and instantly fell in love with the process. Always one to search out the elusive bright, variegated colourways in local yarn shops, she immediately started playing with vibrant colours and creating variegated colourways of her own.

Since 2018 Angela has been on a fantastical fibre adventure. Her spinning wheel arrived right as the pandemic hit in March of 2020, giving her time to play and hone her skills creating art yarn. By the fall of 2020 she was selling hand dyed fibre for spinning and creating circular wall art as a way to channel her love for her colourful and chunky art yarn. In December 2020 she bought her first rigid heddle loom. And that was it.

Since discovering weaving, Angela has expanded her yarn bases to include cotton and non-superwash bases, and in 2021 she discovered an obsession with houndstooth scarves. Angela now also sells her hand dyed, handwoven scarves and wonders what her next fibre adventure will be. Spoiler! It's ice-dyeing and tie-dyeing!

    I listen to music and do light organizing to relax. When I fell in love with dyeing yarn, Neatnik Yarns seemed the perfect name. It was between that and Mixtape Yarns, so I honour my love of music by naming most of my colourways after favourite songs

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

Superwash & Cotton wool/scarf/wrap: Although superwash yarns and cotton are, in theory, washing-machine safe, I still suggest you hand wash in cold water and lay flat or rinse and spin and then lay flat/block to dry. A wool soak like Eucalan is highly recommended.

Non-superwash wool/scarf/wrap: If exposed to heat and agitation, your wool/scarf/wrap will felt, so be sure to hand wash gently in cold water (a wool soak like Eucalan is recommended) and dry flat.

Tell me more about your handwoven scarves & wraps

Each handwoven object has a story, and came to be as a result of many humans earning a liveable wage (Sheep Farmer in Australia / New Zealand, Wool Mill in Ontario / UK & Hand Dyer in Edmonton). Scarves are handwoven on a 16 inch rigid heddle loom (Alice the Ashford) by a human (me, Angela) after the yarn was hand dyed by me. Wraps are handwoven on a 30 inch rigid heddle loom (Freddy the Flip). Much thought went into which yarns to use and how. The weaving bit takes about 2.5 - 5 hours, and the dyeing takes about 2 hours (not including drying).
