Here you will find a most beautiful selection of hand painted yarns - the likes of which you’ve never seen!
We source our fibers as much as we can from within the USA. We look for the best quality and price combination. We look
for a soft hand, a lofty yarn that retains nice stitch definition. By sourcing directy from a mill we are able to keep our costs
down and our environmental footprint small. Our current “Rustic” range includes a 100% wool in worsted and sport
weights and a wool / nylon blend lace yarn. Select retail stores also offer a merino / silk blend in sport and worsted, and an
alpaca/silk lace as part of our “Refined” collection. Learn more about our yarns.
We currently offer three color ranges, Flux, Ombré and Semi-Solid. Ombré and Flux are available in fourteen and ten
colorways respectively. We offer another eighteen Semi-solid colors in palettes that easily coordinate with our gradient
yarns. We use locally manufactured acid dyes throughout as they offer the greatest consistency and are gentle to our
To acheive the long color runs in our Flux and Ombré yarns we have developed our own dyeing process. Though labor intensive, the hands-on nature of the
process allows us to ensure an even consistency in the yarn and colors over multiple dye lots. Our method also means that though our yarns will match
very well from one dye lot to the next, no two balls of yarn will ever be the same. This is most apparent in our “Flux” range where the knitted fabric will have
painterly variations that are made more dramatic as the stitch pattern simplifies. Our Semi-Solids are kettle dyed which offers a depth and subtlety of color
to match our gradient yarns.
We also offer a growing range of downloadable knitting patterns showcasing our assortment of yarns.
What people are saying:
“The yarn is nice to work with, woolly and not too scratchy, although it is definitely a bit rustic (which is not a bad thing IMO). I like the consistency of the
stripes, and the colours do line up perfectly when knitting from one ball to the next.” Emma in Ontario, Canada
“Your designs are just excellent, and the new yarn is so gorgeous!” Faith in New York City
