And here is a bit more about her in her own words...

Hi I’m Dawn and I own the shop Fairy Tale Knits. I started selling hand dyed yarn 2011. At first it was small, and sometimes my yarn didn’t even take up one full table. But as my shop grew, I found I enjoyed hand dyeing more and more.

I first fell in love with knitting when my grandmother taught when I was nine years old. It wasn’t until I was pregnant with my first daughter that I would pick it up again. As I had my other 3 children my love for knitting began to grow.

I quickly became a yarn snob, not settling for the Walmart or craft store yarns. I believe that was the start of my love for dyeing yarn, I couldn’t find the color I wanted on the yarn I wanted, so I dyed it myself.. A few years later I opened my shop, I decided on the name Fairy Tale Knits, because I enjoy whimsy and fairy tales. In 2014 that I switched to only carrying yarns from US farms and mills.

One of my most commonly asked questions is, what is Rambouillet? Well, Rambouillet is a breed of short-haired sheep soft like merino, but it pills less and is less likely to felt. It also has a cottony feel.

So if you are looking for yummy squishy hand dyed yarn, look no farther.

I'm so excited for you to see/feel/hug these yarns in person and they will be available on Tuesday, January 3rd when we REOPEN upstairs in our new comfy space!!!
