Welcome to Peg & Jane Yarns!
Thank you for coming to visit Peg & Jane Yarn Company! My name is Kristen and I currently live in Minnesota, the Land of (over) 10,000 Lakes.
A little about me.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was around eight or nine years old. I loved the freedom of creating my own purses and projects (I brought yarn with me everywhere), but I never advanced from straight lines until I was in college. Knitting joined my repertoire the summer after I graduated and became an obsession with the advent of Ravelry (thanks Alison) and the stress of graduate school. In graduate school I learned to spin (thanks Nora) and joined a knitting club (Greetings, to all the Oxford Drunken Knitwits!). Like many other dyers, I spiraled into the world of dyeing. I am an objects conservator, a career that feeds my art and science soul.
Peg & Jane
Peg & Jane are my grandmothers, Peggy Gillette & Janice Knox, women who have given much of their creativity to their family and friends.
Peg & Jane Yarn Company has two missions:
- To create a beautiful, quality, and eco-conscious product, because we live on this earth and are responsible for its sustainability.
- To give, because we can.
Practically this means that I will regularly add Colorways for a Cause, where a percentage of the retail price will go straight to where it's needed (For more on our mission click here.)
I hope you continue to join me as I strive to fulfill these missions.
