Hello and welcome! I'm so glad you're here!
My name is Addy, and I am the Yarn Dyer and Artist behind Ruby and Roses Yarn. Here's a little bit of info about how I went from starting solo in my parents' garage to dyeing up two ovens-worth of yarn a day with my now husband and three studio assistants! Our dreams are made possible because of your incredible support!!
I have been interested in the fiber arts since I was about 8 years old when I learned to crochet and started to fall in love with textiles. Creativity began to take root in my life early on, and each year I made it a point to explore some type of craft that would allow me to experiment with texture and color. After several years I found yarn dyeing have never looked back since.
Now you might be wondering why I choose the name "Ruby" for my company when my name is actually Addy (which is a question I frequently get and love to answer). My great grandmother, Ruby, was very artistic and unfortunately passed away before I was born, though a part of me feels like I know her well. I grew up hearing story after story about who she was as a person, and seeing all of the art she created that have now turned into heirloom pieces and a sources of inspiration for me. Lastly, roses have always been my favorite flower, particularly those that are ruby red. So, I honored her legacy by naming my business, Ruby and Roses Yarn.
Since I started in 2020 I have been dyeing the highest quality speckled, variegated, and tonal yarn, and promoting my colorways through Instagram and YouTube both directly to knitters and crocheters, and also to yarn stores worldwide! I like to think that Ruby and Roses Yarn is best known for showcasing uniquely colorful, eye-catching color palettes for every style or timeless design. I love to evoke a certain feel with each of my colorway collections that reflect the inspiration behind the themes.
Now, after a few years of dyeing yarn on my own, Devin, my husband, has joined me full time! This change has proved to be one of the most amazing adventures ever, and one that we will never take for granted! While I still dye all of the speckled yarn, he helps so much with HR, website development, wholesale account management, and all things technology. (which is admittedly not my strong suit lol). We are in 25 stores worldwide, and have sold yarn to makers in 33 countries, which still blows my mind. Most importantly, we have built a dedicated following who embrace and support our brand, of which we are so incredibly grateful!
At Ruby and Roses Yarn, our mission is to be more than just a hand dyed yarn company. Our drive is to empower makers to infuse every stitch with intention and meaning. With a commitment to quality and innovation, we meticulously craft our speckled, variegated, and tonal yarn to ensure classic beauty and of course, versatility. We strive to offer a range of color palettes that evoke emotions, and spark creativity, allowing makers to create pieces that reflect their own personal style and vision. Together, we can weave stories, memories, and favorite colors into pieces that will be treasured for a lifetime.
