About TheWanderingFlock

Sales 2,191
On Etsy since 2016

After leaving the world of fast fashion, I was determine to start a business that would be committed to sustainability. While becoming an indie dyer was not the immediate solution that came to mind, it was something I soon discovered gave me the outlet of creativity I craved so much that was lost after I stopped working in fashion.

I had always been a knitter, long before I started working in the world of fashion and always had trouble finding yarn in the exact shade I was hoping for, or patterns I was dying to knit. Having always been a product designer, the only natural solution was to just make it. I’ve always enjoyed the process of creating my own unique creations, so I almost exquisitely never knitted with any patterns but my own.


Finally, in the summer of 2019, I took a leap of faith and decided that I would start The Wandering Flock, a knitwear design studio and hand-dyed yarn line. At the same time, I also took a chance and submitted a couple of sweater designs to Pom Pom Quarterly. I never expected to hear back, but miraculously they choose one of my designs for their Winter 2019 issue, and gave me an opportunity to not only showcase my design, but my yarn as well.

The Wandering Flock has been an incredible journey for me, from appearing in Pom Pom to working with Indie Untangled and meeting knitters who have FOs knitted in my yarn!

Drawing from my experience in fashion, I approach dyeing with a lot of intention, and focus on the final product, your creations. While a skein of yarn is where my process ends, I think about what you will make with it. My hope is to create a line of yarn that’s classic, yet contemporary, and knitwear patterns that will fit into your everyday wardrobe.
