Hi and welcome to MakerWool, based in Colorado, USA!  I'm Dawn, the founder and creator behind our independent, hand-dyed yarns.

My fiber arts journey began in college, when my Mom taught me to crochet. Soon after, I designed my first blanket, playing with colors and stitches. I am happy to say that we still use that blanket today (thanks JoAnn's acrylic yarn!) Knitting and designing soon captured my heart, inspiring a life-long love of self-teaching and the designing 25+ unique patterns.

Recently, as I knit through a scrappy mitered square blanket in an array of purples, I longed for more color variety. I then dedicated myself to the art of dyeing yarn, discovering the joy of combining my own colors, textures and patterns.

I'm excited to share my passion, and to see your unique creations with our hand-dyed yarns. Welcome to the MakerWool family, and join us on our creative journey!
