Mom . Creative . Extrovert



THEN & NOW
At the base of one of the most majestic mountains along the Wasatch Front, you'll find me in a sometimes comical balancing act between raising four energetic littles and hand-dyeing yarn in my home (or the home of my bestie) for my online business.  Mothering, managing a home, and nurturing other meaningful relationships can be complicated at best, yet I still find joy in creating.  This love for creating beautiful things has been a part of me for as long as I can remember, but blossomed with an adult watercolor class my parents enrolled me in when I was eight. Since then, the passion to create has been a steady, dependable, and quiet space of joy. 

HOW I DISCOVERED DYEING
I discovered dyeing through a series of events that, ironically, began with cloth diapering my second child. Cloth diapering led me to wool diaper covers, and eventually inspired the creation of a line of wool children's clothing, which I began dyeing using a method of eco-printing that I developed.  Later, a friend from the wool community introduced me to undyed yarn, and the rest is history! 

FROM ME TO YOU
Though my creative outlets have evolved since my venture into watercolors as a child, I feel gratitude for my current creative journey. Hand-dyed yarn may begin in my hands, but it doesn't end there; the merino yarn is my canvas, and then becomes your color palette, waiting to be transformed into something new—something beautiful, created by you!    



THE WOOL PALETTE
Simple . Cohesive . Colorful   

THE SHOP
Established in August 2020, The Wool Palette was born out of years of creative experience in color theory, dyeing, and marketing.  Though life can be complicated, knitting shouldn't have to be.  Here at The Wool Palette, we believe less can be more and strive to create a refreshing shopping experience with our beautiful colorways and minimalist approach. 

OUR YARN
We carry two staple bases (100% superwash merino + a high twist 85/15 superwash merino/nylon sock yarn), and have organized our colorways into three easy to navigate collections...

PANTONE PRINTS

These semi-solid seasonal colorways are inspired by the Pantone colors of the year.  The custom mixed colors are repeatable, and may be restocked until next season's colorways are released.  Available only on 100% sw merino fingering and 85/15 high twist sock.


HAND-PAINTED ORIGINALS
Dyed in small batches, these colorways are more complex than the first collection and are one of a kind (non-repeatable).  You'll find Hand-painted Originals on either of the staple bases, and/or on tweedy sock, single-ply merino/silk, or seasonal sparkle sock yarn.

MASTERPIECE
These are over-the-top colorways consisting of shawl kits, fade sets, and plush hand-wound gradient yarn cakes.  Masterpiece colorways may be found on any of our staple or luxury merino yarn bases, and are always one-of-a-kind pieces of art!  


*The Wool Palette carries only supersoft, superwash merino wool yarn in fingering/sock weight.  Need something thicker?--No problem! Double strand any of our fingering/sock yarn for the perfect DK weight, OR try this amazing trick (thanks Stephen West) to create a triple strand in a snap!
