About

 

Hey all! Its great that you stopped by to read about little me. I am Elysia, the founder and owner of the hand dyed yarn company called Yarn Ink {art on string}.  Do you know the reason behind my name and slogan. Well, simply put it's Yarn + Ink = art on string. Cool hey? The whole name came to me with such a fierce passionate YES thats it! I was determined to then create a brand that people would love and know.  I am a mum to 2 (My son Roman and my daughter Ava and 1), and married to Steve.  If you can make it to the fibre shows I am in, you will meet them all.

Yarn Ink {art on string} is a small hand dyed yarn & fibre company based in a small town just south of Calgary, Alberta. My main focus is on unique colorways on superior quality and cruelty free (this is extremely important to me) yarns. 

 Every skein is hand dyed using a variety of applications. I mostly kettle dye colorways and only use professional acid based dyes. All skeins are set until the water is clear and then naturally cooled to allow for complete saturation and absorption. Some colours may bleed slightly the first few times they're washed, this is normal and in no way means a loss of colour. In each skein you may find some odd spots and speckles, these little speckles of beauty can't be controlled nor can they be created. I will sell some skeins as seconds if I feel the splotches affect the look of the colorway or take over too much.

I mainly offer speckled/variegated colorways but continue to dabble a little bit into semi tonal colorways. I always try my best to photograph my colorways, but with different monitors, colours can vary greatly. I am the sole owner and dyer and only dye in small batches.
