Dream in Color - Veronica and team from Tucson Arizona
We’re captivated with rich, glorious color. Obsessed with natural fiber yarns. Consumed by a love for hand-knitting.Welcome to Dream in Color Yarn. We’re glad you’re here.We believe creativity in color is joyous and must be shared!
We only offer yarns that we want to knit with ourselves. And we’re picky. If a yarn isn’t deliciously-soft, durable and uber-high quality, then it isn’t going to make our line-up.

Happy Go Knitty - New Zealand
Hi, I'm Helene and I'm the indie dyer behind all the yarn you can find on this website. I have my roots in Sweden but now live in Auckland, New Zealand.
There's so much exciting happening in the wool world here in the Southern hemisphere at the moment and the yarn bases I use are mainly produced in small mills in New Zealand and Australia – merino-cross, polwarth and suri alpaca are the main fibres. They are woolly, pure and non superwash treated. The fibres can be traced back to the farm they came from. Pretty cool, if you ask me!
Yarn blends that are not produced here downunder, I source from other parts of the world. They are more exotic ones like yak, silk and mohair. Luxury and lovely in there own kind of way.
Hedgehog Fibres - Cork Ireland
Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland.
Yarn dyeing started as an extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies - spinning, knitting and crochet. Beata says “Soon after I took up knitting, I realised I really wanted to create my own yarn line of soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colours. It's the colours I want to knit with, the colours I want to wear and the colours I can't live without.” Hedgehog Fibres colours reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods - but always colours she loves! Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade. In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so in 2008, when knitting friends pushed her to sell them yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. (No hedgehogs are harmed in the making of our products!)
Malabrigo - Uruguay, South America
We are a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay and we have developed a line of Hand-Dyed yarns of incredible softness and wonderful color variations. Our products are made out of the softest fibers available and inspired by nature, as well as landscapes, places, art and day-to-day life. This is what we try to represent when naming our 18 yarn varieties and the range of over 300 colors they come in.
We produce yarn because we are passionate about it. We believe in the pleasure of knitting with good-quality, carefully designed, subtly dyed yarns and in the joy of wearing whatever is made out of them. Our wish is to continue developing yarns and colors to inspire people all over the world, and in return be inspired by them .
Night Owl Yarn - Rachel from Houston Texas
I began crafting at a very young age (3 years old) when my mom taught me how to embroider dish towels. Many nights I would realize when it was bed time that I had somehow embroidered my work to my night gown. My home has always been filled with crafts and interesting projects. Crafting and making things has also been passed down to me from great grandmothers, my grandma and my mom.
In December 2014 I asked my parents for some bare yarn and acid dyes and my creativity came to life in ways that I could have never imagined. Thus Night Owl Fibers was born. My inspiration for dyeing comes from every aspect of my life, from movies to nature, pop culture and music and the list goes on.
Qing Fibre - Layla from London, UK
Ali Telfer is the dyer and mastermind behind Savvy Skeins. It all began about 10 years ago when she decided she wanted to learn how to knit. Knitting turned into spinning, then spinning into dyeing. Ali takes pride in the artistic side of dyeing yarn. Each skein dyed is like it's own piece of art. Careful attention to color combinations and techniques makes Savvy Skeins a stand out brand. The yarn is dyed in small batches from her home in New Braunfels, TX.
Suburban Stitcher - Richmond TX
My name is Dianne, and I’m so happy you found me. I started blogging in 2006 when I found myself very temporarily at home, in between jobs, and completely OBSESSED with cross-stitching. Over the last several years I have enjoyed stitching, sewing, quilting, and knitting…but the one constant has been my love for sharing with all of you what I’m working on. Podcasting is my newest venture, and I’m loving it so far! I currently am the full time yarn dyer & creative guru for Suburban Stitcher. I never could have dreamed or imagined in 2006 that starting that blog would one day become my career, but here we are and I’m so glad you are along for the ride.
On a personal note 🙂 I am married to an AMAZING man (Mr. Stitcher!), have two boys & one lazy dog. I love the beach, clean bright rooms, and all things pink and purple. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2014, and since then I’ve eaten a strict gluten-free diet. I’m addicted to hot tea, and I LOVE using essential oils. I often talk about my journeys with diet and health on Instagram and my podcast, and of course, will always answer questions as they come up.
