Frequently Asked Questions

How do you dye your yarn?

Most of our colors are dyed using a full immersion method and acid dyes. We use food-grade citirc acid (think sour patch kids!), and layer different colors at timed intervals throughout the dye process. Our recipes are written to dye 6 skeins at a time, so some magic has to happen to whittle that down to 1 or 2 skeins to achieve the same effect. We do the best that we can to maintain consistency, but have many, many variables stacked against us.

Help! I ran out of yarn!

No problem! Please send me a note with your order. I may contact you for a photo to use for color matching.

Why only superwash?

Well, I'll be the first to admit that I am a selfish knitter! I love knitting big, comfy, shawls and sweaters and as much as I love a great wooly wool, I just can't wear the stuff! When I discovered that I could actually wear this line of superwash merino, I just had to share!!! If you have wool of your own that you would like dyed, I'm happy to work with you!

What inspires you?

I am inspired by literally everything I see! Beauty is all around if you look close enough. I'm a huge music nerd and name a lot of my colors after songs and bands. I admittedly do not check to see if I'm stepping on anyone's toes when I chose color names, so if you happen to come across any duplicates, I'll be super embarrassed so please let me know so I can make changes accordingly :)

In addition to music, I'm a lover of all things art, design, architecture, fashion, but most of all, nature.

I'm a designer and your yarn might be perfect for an idea I have in mind...

Well let's get you some yarn so you can get to work!!! Shoot me an email at! I'm also happy to work with you on color combinations and/or kits for your design(s).
