Kits coming soon for Casapinka's Snark-o-meter knit along.  4 skeins of Merino Fine, put together just for you, launching (imminently!!) around 7/27, will be listed under Merino Fine and Kits, as well.

Dyed fiber is here!  20+ lbs of 85/15 Polwarth Silk is in the house plus a very limited quantity of Merino Alpaca Silk blend, it will travel to Eureka Fiber Fest (MT), Yarnie Camp (McCall, ID), and what's left should end up on the website here.  Some will of course be reserved for Fiber Fusion (Monroe, WA) in October!

Targhee/Bamboo/Silk fiber is next up for dyeing.  And, Corriedale too, to refresh the supply of 2 ounce Gumballs for all those happy needle felters.

The first round of Silky Mo has been dyed, we've got 100 skeins on hand.  Twist, tag, photo, send some to my fave Montana and Wyoming yarn shops, the rest will launch on website by end of the month.  The last round will get finished in August.


Hand dyed, superwash merino with nylon-- meet Magruder DK, the new DK sock yarn!  Full skeins are appearing in the shop, and we are working through the minis as fast as small hands can twist.


Preorder the mega load of DK minis in the Mini Mega Box now, it will ship in early August.  Click the pic to learn more about this luscious box of 35 mini skeins!



Hand dyed, hand washable merino:  7 Devils DK, available in sweater quantities.


Welcome to our indie dye studio, Palouse Yarn Company.  Dyeing with inspiration from nature in the Pacific Northwest, colors are saturated, tonal, and great for larger projects.

The dyeing is all done by me, Shelley, owner of The Yarn Underground, but the twisting, naming, and tagging has been taken over by the kids --  it's a true family business.

I dye seasonally in my backyard open-air studio.  You can find the most popular PYC bases in a smattering of other great yarn shops in WA, MT, and WY.  We strive to keep about 15 bases of yarn on the walls here, and they ebb and flow with the seasons.

In progress, a re-name all of the new House Brand yarns to reflect our unique and vibrant ecology and geography in the PNW.  Currently, find all PYC yarns for sale by weight under the YARN tab!

Thank you for your interest in our family businesses, I can't wait to share what's next.
