2020: Wild Hare Fiber Studio

Wild Hare Fiber Studio

Wild Hare Fiber Studio is known for hand-dyed yarns and fibers both wild and mild: from black light reactive, gradient dyed, speckled and splatterdash yarns, to custom blended, space dyed and vegan spinning fibers. You'll always find something new and inspiring from Wild Hare! Also home of the Weave-a-Round Circle loom.

How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to start your business?
I was a realtor obsessed with spinning and knitting when the real estate market began to crash in 2007. One day, with real estate deals falling through and the market in a tumble, I said to myself 'I've a mind to go off on a wild hare and start a fiber business.' I tentatively listed a few skeins of handspun on etsy thinking it might at least help fund my fiber addiction. When asked for my business name, I thought -- what the heck -- and typed in wildhare. The name stuck. (And no, I don't raise rabbits!) My online fiber business grew and I soon left real estate behind and started doing shows and festivals too. My 'wild hare' turned out to be the right choice!

What's your favorite thing about being a yarnie?
Having the perfect excuse for spending lots of time messing around with yarn and fiber... and being able to say 'that's not a ridiculously big stash - it's inventory!"
