One of the many independent yarn dyers’ websites that I love to check regularly is Junkyarn’s.  This yarn has always captivated me with bright colors and lovely speckles.  And you know I’m a sucker for speckles!  

Junkyarn is dyed by Kemper who is inspired by women from all around the world.  Her colorway names, such as Faionista Barbie, are as imaginative as the colors themselves.


Kemper has many bases on which she dyes her gorgeous colors, including…

Smooth Sock (75/25)

Boss Sock (80/20)

Starlet 2-ply (5% Stellina)

Plush MCN Fingering (80% Merino /10% Nylon /10% Cashmere)

Merino DK (100% Merino)

Merino Worsted (100% Merino)

Burlesque Bulky (100% Merino)

Bloom (90% Merino /10% Mohair)

Lavish Lace (70% Mohair /30% Silk)



There is always something lovely for sale on the Junkyarn website.  Kemper often offers kits for popular patterns, as well.  Right now, there’s a Self-Care kit available on the site, to help you relax during this COVID crisis.  

Ease of Shopping

The Junkyarn website is super easy to use and the picture quality of the yarns is always very good….which is one of the many reasons I love checking the website habitually!


Shipping Costs

When ordering from Junkyarn, the shipping costs are very reasonable.  


I always love to see what Kemper has dyed up.  Her colors are stunning!  Be sure to follow her on social media to see what colors she dyes up and what projects she’s working on.  

This is a dyer that I’ll continue to watch!
