We are excited to be hosting a trunk show of The True North Creative Yarn! This indie dyer is out of Mississauga, Canada, creating beautiful variegated, speckled, and self stripping yarn!
About the Dyer
“ I’ve always felt a pull to be creative but took a more conventional path through school, first getting an Honours Bachelor of Arts and then graduating law school with my Juris Doctor. Once I was working in the legal field, I found that I wasn’t totally happy and something was missing. I started dyeing yarn originally as something fun to do after work, but once I realized how much I enjoyed it I opened my Etsy shop. At first I worked on it in the evenings and weekends after work, but eventually my work contract was over and I decided to pursue this full-time instead of looking for another legal position. I have never regretted that decision. I love playing with colours to see how they interact with each other and finding unusual colour combinations. While I enjoy a good neutral, I am more drawn to colour, sometimes soft and subtle, sometimes bright and bold. Speckled yarns are one of my favourites to dye because they allow me to bring in a lot of colour to one skein.”
