As an avid knitter and long-time lover of indie yarns, I began experimenting with my own hand dyes in 2012. I first dyed for myself. Then my knit group. And then sweet friends from Ravelry, who urged me to open up a shop. As I went chasing after the colors in my head, a new addiction took root. In 2013, I opened up Duck Duck Wool. My favorite part of being an indie dyer is meeting the talented makers who choose DDW for their projects, as well as making so many dear fiber friends. I love dyeing complex semi solids and speckled colorways. And I have a thing for puns (especially when naming sock colorways...looking at you Darth Side of the Moon).

We dye high quality knitting yarns and spinning fibers in deep, rich and sometimes crazy bright colors for your crafting pleasure. You can find our yarns and fibers here in the shop and in brick and mortar yarn shops across the country and the world, as well as at various fiber festivals throughout the year. The Colors of Happiness are created and shared with the world in the Washington, DC area by Kate Chiocchio and Nancye Bonomo and the amazing Team Dragonfly. We have been coming to Homespun Yarn Party since the beginning and love this energetic local show.

Fine crafted Raku fired clay buttons, shawl pins, sweater magnets and jewelry. Our buttons are sturdy, lightweight, smooth and washable. Each piece is one of a kind and made with attention to color, texture and detail - just like the wonderful fiber works they adorn!
I'm known for my rich, saturated colors, with color blending that flows from one hue to another. I use many bases of yarns, a variety of wools, silk, alpaca. I also carry felting supplies including roving, needles, and kits for nuno felting.
I started my business over 30 years ago, with one sheep and a studio. My love of color led me to begin dyeing the wool, then spinning, knitting, weaving and felting followed. I am part of an artisan tour three times a year and also show at a few sheep and wool festivals. I hold monthly classes on felting and knitting out of my studio on my small farm.

At Crabapple Yarns, I dye luxury fibers like merino and bamboo, yak and tweeds; for not only knitting but crocheting, and weaving too! I love to dye vibrant variegated combos, gradients, speckled and semi solids on a variety of weights from fingering to worsted.
