The relationship between a knitter and her yarn should be love at first sight; when you meet the colorway of your dreams, it should take your breath away.
I've seen far too many knitters walk away from those breathtaking colorways because they don't know what to make with the yarn, and they don't want to bring it home, just to have it sit in their stash, unused and unloved.
That's why I do what I do!
My mission is to pair gorgeous, hand-dyed colorways with the patterns that will highlight their best features, so that a knitter never has to wonder what she's going to make with my yarns. I don't want you to have a stash full of yarns you love but never use - I want you to have a curated collection of hand knit items, made in all your favorite colors.
"Love everything I buy from this store. Cheryl has AMAZING yarn that she hand dyes and is soooo easy to deal with. This is the third time coming back for orders. She has AMAZING products and EXCELLENT customer service." - Pam, a Happy Hypnotic Yarns customer
"I am utterly in love with your products, and while I ogle your stuff online, when it comes in, it's even more beautiful. You are one of my favorite dyers - plus your response time and customer service is top notch. I will be buying from you for years to come." - Jennifer, a Happy Hypnotic Yarns customer
Owner / Dyer
Captain Skein Twister
From my New Hampshire studio, I work with professional grade dyes and carefully selected bases to create bright, bold colorways that will liven up even the most vanilla of vanilla socks.
My love of color and aesthetics led me to study interior design in college. Later, I turned to fiction writing as a creative outlet while simultaneously dipping my toes into the Etsy waters by starting a small handcrafted nail polish business.
So you see, my path toward the fiber arts wasn’t a direct one, but I’m a big fan of the saying Everything happens for a reason, and each leg of the journey brought me one step closer to building this business (and to you, my amazing customers), and I wouldn’t change a thing!
And of course, I’d be lost without my trusty sidekicks (the aforementioned chihuahuas who must be wrangled) Simon and Piper, my 1 year old Chihuahua puppies.
