I create hand dyed yarns, many that are hand painted, to reflect the photos that I take on my travels. I try to find local inspiration as well, to remind people that you don’t have to have lots of money to travel or feel inspired. My yarns tell a story, either about the place that inspired the colorways or links you to a special memory.
I offer luxury skeins of yarn that cannot be found in big box craft stores. While most of my yarns are wool based, I do offer yarns of 100% silk, baby camel, bamboo, etc all hand dyed with the theme of travel in mind.
My yarns can be found at various different fiber festivals throughout the year, with many in Minnesota.
