Today’s incredible independent yarn dyer started dyeing yarn at the age of 15. Fifteen! When I saw my first skein of this yarn – the lovey coral/pink pictured here – I was floored. That was my color! So imagine my surprise when I learned that this dyer was such a young entrepreneur!
Since beginning her business, Emma has been joined by her sister, Aspen. Together, they have grown their yarn business into a career. They reside in Florida and ship Emma’s yarn around the country – and to the U.K.
There are several bases to choose from with Emma’s Yarn, including…
Practically Perfect Sock (Fingering – 80/20)
Super Silky (Fingering – 80% Merino/20% Silk)
Hella Hank (Fingering – MCN)
Beautifully Basic (Fingering – 100% Merino)
Simply Spectacular DK (75/25)
Bodacious Bulky (100% Merino)
Marvelous Mohair (Lace – 72% Mohair/28% Silk)
I’m seeing Emma’s yarn pop up in more and more yarn stores. For a complete list of stockists, go here. Emma’s Yarn cannot be bought directly from the dyer.
Ease of Shopping
Since you have to go through a yarn store to buy this yarn, it can sometimes be tricky to find a store with a good website – if you don’t have a LYS stockist in your area. And now with COVID, it’s a bit more challenging when you can’t always get out to your LYS.
Shipping depends on from whom you order this yarn. A lot of local yarn stores are still offering some shipping discounts due to COVID.
I’m so happy I found this dyer. And now, this skein will be immortalized for me in the Westknits Slipstravaganza of 2020! This beautiful coral color will be my bright pop of color in this shawl and I cannot wait to see it knitted up!
If you can find this yarn, definitely check it out. There are so many “crazy beautiful” colorways to choose from!
