Emma’s Yarn was started by Emma, a (then) 15 year-old homeschooled student who fell in love with dyeing yarn when learning ratios in her math lesson. Her eye for color is amazing! It wasn’t long before she started selling small batches in her parents’ yarn shop, and when that proved to be successful, moved production from her kitchen to a dye studio downtown. Her sister, Aspen, joined her after graduating college and together they built Emma's Yarn into what it is today; a wholesale company providing Local Yarn Shops with high quality, hand-dyed yarn from right here in sunny Florida.
Today, 4 years later, we are a small team of 13 members made up of our family and close friends. With 16 different bases, over 100 crazy beautiful colorways, and new ideas pumping ALL . THE . TIME, there is no end to our fun in sight!
Our Misson - Support the LYS
Growing up in our parents' LYS, we learned that there truly is nothing like a good local yarn shop. Aside from the value and support they provide to their customers (help with knitting, help reading patterns, help choosing the best supplies, etc.) they provide a unique and special place in the community for all sorts of makers and fiber friends to come together.
In order to best support local yarn shops, we only sell our yarn through them. Our yarn is not available for sale on our own website (only to LYS partners). You can find a yarn shop who carries Emma's Yarn here (many sell online)! Even if none of the shops are close to you, each of them will be happy help you find the Emma's Yarn you are looking for.
