Emma’s Yarn was started by Emma, a then 15 year-old home-schooled student who was simply completing a math lesson when she fell in love with dyeing yarn. It all started when she dyed a small batch of yarn for fun when learning about ratios in her math class.
From then on, she just couldn’t get enough! Emma now divides her time between being a dedicated high school student, a beautiful dancer, and an amazing indie dyer. Emma’s sister, Aspen, has just graduated from college with a degree in Anthropology and has joined her sister in dyeing and developing Emma’s Yarn full time.
With a family of knitters and weavers with entrepreneurial minds and a passion for color, Emma’s Yarn quickly went from a creative school lesson to a family-run, lots of fun dye studio located in Winter Haven, Florida.
With six different bases and two mini skein options (which can all be seen here), over 70 crazy beautiful colorways (which can be seen here), and new ideas pumping all.the.time, there is no end to our fun in sight!
We believe that local yarn shops serve a very important purpose in any
community and therefore our yarn is sold exclusively through local yarn shops. Find a list of retailers here. Don’t see your LYS? We would love to be introduced! Have your favorite shop owner contact us here!
