About Us


me.jpgA Museum Started My Hand Dyed Wool Adventure!

Our journey with handspun and hand-dyed yarn began in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where my family and I dedicated over three years to a local living history museum. We immersed ourselves in the 1750s log home, demonstrating the complete wool process. It was amazing to show thousands how wool yarn was hand spun, transformed into hand-dyed yarn, and then crafted into garments. This experience ignited a passion in me for wool and fiber that continues to grow.


My journey into selling my handspun yarn and hand-knit items began when I started working at the museum. I was inspired to create a hand-dyed yarn line, drawing from the museum's vibrant colors. The hand dyed yarns on my website are a true reflection of my years at the museum and the experience I gained hand dyeing yarn.


  Fast forward ten years.  We now live in the hills of West Virginia and are on a quest to restart an old homestead.  I have taken what I learned in those early years at the museum and am expanding on it.


Every skein of our hand-dyed yarn is a unique masterpiece, crafted by me. Due to the nature of the hand-dyeing process, each skein carries its own distinct charm, even if they come from the same dyepot.  I dye in small batches of 3-5 skeins, and I recommend purchasing all you need for a project at once

A gentle reminder, when using hand-dyed yarns with the same colors in a project that requires more than one skein, I strongly recommend alternating skeins every other row of knitting to even out any color pooling that might occur.

The yarn comes from a clean, non-smoking home.

Recent Developments:


Exciting news! We've recently moved to a 19-acre homestead in the scenic hills of West Virginia. We've upgraded our living situation and now have a dedicated room for our yarn. This has allowed us to significantly increase our stock, and we're thrilled to announce that we'll ramp up our dyeing activities as the weather gets warmer.



Monitors Matter

Hand spun wool on a bobbin I capture images of my hand-spun and hand-dyed yarn to portray its vibrancy and texture. Furthermore, I do my best to accurately represent the fiber's softness and content for each yarn type. Please be mindful that computer monitors might not show colors as accurately as in person, but the beauty of this handcrafted process ensures each skein is delightfully one-of-a-kind.
