Cactus Yarn Studio

Cactus Yarn Studio

What sets CACTUS Yarn Studio apart? I hand paint each sock blank as though it were a canvas. Those paintings are then unravelled by you as you knit your socks, mittens, shawl, etc.!
These paintings are sometimes funny, sometimes life-like and can even include a message!

Obviously, the painting will disappear as you knit your project, but half the fun is watching the painting vanishing and turn into another colorway. You’ll be the only one to know that your finished object hides a painting or a message. Isn’t that amazing?
Put aside the sock blanks, I also dye skeins of yarn in a deep and rich solid color. When I’m working at my dye pots, I especially love creating intense colorway by layering a selection of colours one on top of the other. Those ones are just mesmerizing!
