I’m an engineer with a serious yarn addiction, who decided to leave a life of electronics and high-tech spy planes for hand-dyeing and knitting. Sounds crazy and it probably is, but I’m finally running my own business and couldn’t be happier.
Alpenglow Yarn started in 2009 with 3 words: Glowing Natural Color. I love creating vivid, saturated, and brilliant colors with natural dyes. I feature base yarns from American mills as well as a series called Small Farm Yarn – yarn produced at small mills with wool from Mendocino and alpaca from the Central Coast of California. I also feature undyed Small Farm Fiber – carded roving for spinners. Supporting local businesses and sustainable farming are an important aspect of the business, and so is providing a variety of interesting fibers. Yarns from around the world (including superwash merinos and silks) are featured in the Global Yarn line.
I’m Carrie Sundra in real life and I’m curlie on Ravelry. If you stalk me and end up with a yarn addiction, I deny all responsibility. :)
