Emma’s Yarn was started by Emma, a then 15 year-old homeschooled student who fell in love with dyeing yarn when learning ratiosin her math class! It wasn’t long before she started selling small batches in her parents’ yarn shop and moved production from her kitchen to a dye studio. Her sister, Aspen, joined her after graduating college and together they are the main dyers and run the business together.
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 11 different bases and two mini skein options (which can all be seen here), over 100 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 the 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!
