Hand Dyed Yarn: Featured Indie Dyer of the Month

Featured Indie Dyer of the Month: Wollen Yarn

Wollen Yarn hand dyed Superwash Merino DK yarn – available for a limited time throughout February only!

This month we are super excited to feature a sumptuously squishable 100% Merino yarn hand dyed to semi-solid and speckled perfection in Bavaria by the super talented Kathrin Pfundtner.

Kathrin’s love of knitting is rivaled only by her admiration for beautifully illustrated books. As a result, the stunning eight color collection you see here is inspired by the gorgeous drawings of Lovisa Burfitt in the charming Mademoiselle Oiseau books, written by Andrea de la Barre de Nanteuil.

The special story of Mademoiselle Oiseau is about friendship, dreams and growing up, and highlights how the kindness and generosity of others helps foster bravery and confidence in those that need it most. These feelings are reflected in Kathrin’s business philosophy, and also strongly within our creative community where we are striving for inclusivity and fairness.

The spirit of Oiseua - a word on dreams and kindness…

In a world where fashion is fast, not much is produced to stay. Kathrin feels that if we make our own clothes and accessories, with exactly the wool that was imagined for the project, then we are happy and proud to wear them for a lifetime. Thus, it appeared logical to her to dye the wool herself by hand…and we sure are glad she did! 

Kathrin’s yarn bases are sourced from companies that work without mulesing, offer fair conditions for animals and people and produce in an environmentally sustainable manner.
