If you like self-striping yarn, like me, you’ve most likely heard of Woolens and Nosh. Michele is the dyer behind Woolens and Nosh and she lives in Vermont. She has made a name for herself among knitters as a self-striping yarn master and I could not wait to get my hands on some of her yarn.
Let me tell you more!
Michele dyes Woolens and Nosh yarn on many bases, including…
Kid Silk (Lace – 72% Kid Mohair/28% silk)
SW Targhee (Fingering – 90% SW Targhee/10% Nylon)

Non-superwash Merino (Fingering – 100% Merino)
MCN (Fingering – 80% SW Merino/10% Cashmere/10% Nylon)

I’ve always found yarn for sale on the Woolens and Nosh website, but to get the best selection, you need to follow Michele on Instagram to learn of her updates. And once she updates, yarn sells very quickly! You need to know what you want beforehand and be ready to check out!
One thing I love about Michele is that she offers so many bases with which you can knit socks! How cool is that?!
Ease of Shopping
Michele’s website is very easy to use. And there are accessories and brand goodies to go along with the awesome yarn for sale!
Shipping within the United States is very reasonable and fast.
When Michele comes out with a new colorway, I’m almost always amazed. She has an incredible eye for color and I know I’ll buy more yarn from her in the future. Be sure to follow her on Instagram to keep tabs on what she dyeing.
