We couldn’t be more excited to announce our second dyer in the 2021 Yarn A Long line-up: Spincycle Yarns!⁠

Kate and Rachel began Spincycle Yarns as a handspinnery back in 2004, with the two of them kettle dyeing and spinning all their yarn in small batches, and selling it at a local farmers’ market.⁠

In 2012, they began to work with a little local fibre mill to begin production of a mill spun yarn that would maintain the look of their handspun, while allowing them to produce at a much faster pace. In the summer of 2017, they bought that mill! They now dye, spin, design, package & ship everything from their little warehouse in Bellingham, Washington, USA. ⁠

All Spincycle yarns are dyed in the wool, a slow but oh-so-worth-it kettle dyeing process that results in long colour changes and unpredictable transitions through the skein. Every skein is like a fingerprint, one-of-a-kind, like every knitted project. Kate and Rachel think of their colourways as moods… pick yours, and watch the layers unfold.⁠

The wool that Spincycle uses is grown, processed, dyed & spun in the USA. Their superwash wool blend consists of Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino breeds, raised primarily in South Dakota and Wyoming. The sheep that supply Spincycle their wool are 100% non-mulesed. ⁠

We'll be adding Spincycle Yarns to our range later this year!. Keep an eye on our social media or sign up for our newsletter to get announcements of when it launches!
