I'm excited to announce the launch of my new yarn line! After extensive research and testing I finally found a source in the U.S. for small batch dyeing of wool rug yarn. It's 100% New Zealand wool, spun in India and dyed to my specifications in Georgia.
This yarn is perfect for tufting, punch needle embroidery, weaving, and many other textile crafts.
The rug wool is skein dyed during a 6+ hour process. It's also moth-proofed to prevent flying critters from munching on your work. I receive the yarn on 5 pound spools and transfer it to smaller cones.
I regularly add colors to my line, so check back often!

Over a sheep’s lifetime, its fleece will absorb approximately 30 kg of carbon dioxide.
Naturally biodegradable, wool minimizes the amount of waste that sits in landfills.
Wool can absorb indoor contaminants, including formaldehyde, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide and locks them away in the fiber core.
Wool’s high nitrogen and water content makes it naturally flame resistant. Wool does not ignite easily and will self-extinguish. Should wool burn it does not melt while burning. Wool produces less smoke and toxic fumes during combustion than synthetic fibers, making it a far safer choice.
