Jan’s Handcrafted YarnS
Experience Explosion of Colors and Textures
Jan’s highly-textured and vividly-colored hand-spun & hand-dyed yarns are sought-after by hand-knitters, felters and weavers. Whether used for knitting projects, accents in needle-felted creations, or woven garments - Jan’s Handcrafted Yarns make every project unique.
Fleeces acquired at sheep & wool festivals are lovingly washed & hand-picked and processed into roving, then they are hand-spun and hand-dyed by Jan for his avid repeat and new customers. They are delighted to use the color and texture of yarns that are perfect for those very special projects.
To complement the selection of vividly hand-dyed yarns, Jan introduced a selection of hand-dyed spinning fibers for the spinning enthusiasts that love exuberant colors. Fleeces acquired locally include Rambouillet, Corridale, Jacob, Blue-Faced Leicester and Border Leicester.
And for avid knitters who love color, Jan offers the luxurious and sumptuous mill-spun yarns that he hand-dyes: Merino/Silk, Alpaca/Merino/Silk, Blue-Faced-Leicester, Superwash-Merino/Cashmere, Silk/Kid-Mohair/Sparkle Blends. They’re loved by all looking for yarns that are lush to touch, a joy to knit and cozy to wear.
It’s easy to be drawn into Jan’s world of enchanted and boisterous colors and textures, from the softest hand-dyed fingering-weight yarns for shawls or socks to bulky hand-spun & hand-dyed yarns for those very special projects.
You can also find Jan’s exquisite finished wear from fringed boas, shawls and scarves to cozy and stylish sweaters. They reflect the care and artistic flair he gives to all his work.
