Spin Cycle

Spincycle Yarn is owned by Kate and Rachel who began as a handspinnery back in 2004.  They both kettle dyed and spun all of their yarn in small batches and selling at  local farmers’ market. When, in 2012, a little fiber mill opened its doors just south of our Bellingham, Washington, studio and dye house, they partnered with them to begin production of a millspun yarn that would maintain the look of our handspun yarn but which could be produced at a much faster pace.

Turns out that was a pretty good idea. In the summer of 2017, they bought that mill and moved the whole operation up to Bellingham, and under one roof. They now dye, spin, design, package and ship everything from our little warehouse on Queen Street. They offer yarns from sport weight to super bulky, and they offer an ever-growing selection of knitting patterns that highlight the uniqueness of our yarns. All of their yarns are dyed in the wool, a slow and meticulous process resulting in long color changes and unpredictable transitions through the skein... Every skein is like a snowflake! Or a fingerprint! One-of-a-kind, like every knitted project.

Folks who have worked with Spincycle yarns before know that, although they do their darnedest to photograph everything in real light, every skein is unique (they can't say that enough!) & therefore probably won't look exactly, precisely like the ones in the photos. Think of our colorways as moods! Pick yours and watch the layers unfold.

All of their wool is grown, processed, dyed and spun in the USA.

The wool used in their non-superwashed yarns is a blend of Corriedale, Rambouillet, and Columbia sheep raised in Colorado and Wyoming. Their superwashed wool blend consists of Rambouillet, Targhee and Merino breeds, raised primarily in South Dakota and Wyoming.

The sheep that supply Spincycle with their wool are 100% non-mulesed.
