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: 

  1. To create a beautiful, quality, and eco-conscious product, because we live on this earth and are responsible for its sustainability. 
  2. 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.

Sincerely,                                                       

Kristen
