Stephanie McKinney of Dyerwolf Yarn Co. began knitting intensively in 2011 when medical issues left her with some major anxiety. Knitting helped calm her, and she began playing with hand-dyeing yarns so that she could make her projects exactly how she wanted them. She spent a year playing with different techniques before she opened for business. Stephanie is inspired by everything from books, songs, and TV to nature and photography. She loves seeing the beautiful creations people make with her yarns.
