Hello and welcome to Log House Cottage Yarns!
The cottage studio where we create our hand dyed yarn is nestled in the countryside of rural Ontario, Canada, just south of the city of Ottawa. Surrounded by trees, horses grazing in the pasture and cats playing in the wood pile. The log house studio is where a kaleidoscope of colors come together to meet fabulous fibers.
The humble beginnings came from a frustrated maker, not able to find yarns with the colors and textures needed to create the finished knits, crochet or woven items I envisioned. With naked yarn and dye in hand I found a new form of creative expression and a way to achieve the color and texture needed to satisfy the maker in me. Now I have the privilege of working in a log studio with a view that never ceases to inspire. I spend my days testing new techniques, combining different colors and jumping in with both feet, throwing caution to the wind to create something new each day.
Sharing the yarns that result with other makers and watching it transform into a finished work of art is like icing on the cake.
Thank you for joining us on the road to inspire, encourage, educate and create.. We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website. There's much more to come.
