A lifelong knitting and textile arts lover, Julie fell into dyeing when she was still a child ! In 2012, she turned her passion into a business, stirring her dyeing pots to create her own line of hand-dyed yarn. Beyond dyeing, she’s interested in the textile industry and its environmental aspect. These past 2 years, her husband, Jean-François, has joined her and helped turn their small company in a family business. They are both curious, always on the lookout for new techniques that might help them make even better yarn.
