Our Yarns and Dyeing

Our yarns are pretty, shiny, and wonderful to work with, dyed with sweaters in mind.  Tonal, earthy, locally inspired colorways.  Fat 4 ounce skeins.  We aim for a mix of repeatable colorways for year-to-year continuity, with new limited edition collections each year:  Introducing Scenic Byways, our 2017 special edition colorways!  Pics coming soon.


Shelley, the creative genius behind the colors, has been knitting for 32+ years, spinning for a dozen, and dyeing for 10.  She is inspired by the wonderful forests, prairies, and lakes of Northern Idaho, and would spend all her time floating down the Salmon River with her family if left to her own devices.  Spindle in hand, of course.

On the Horizon

 Our long term mission is to create a truly local, sustainable and repeatable yarn sourced from the Palouse Prairie.  And dye it beautifully.

Enter The Polypay Project.  A local-sourced, happy-sheep project has finally turned into a product!

Update:  After 2 mills and an entire 11 months, we have a finished yarn.  It's been a long strange trip; first, there was a partial pile of finished roving, but the job was not complete.  Now, we finally have yarn in hand!

And it is wonderful.  Everything we dreamed of.  315 yards to a big fat skein, with some nylon blended in for a superb sock yarn.  There are 100 precious skeins.  Dyed.  Now hanging on the Local wall at The Yarn Underground!
