Lauren started agirlandherwool in May 2019. On her birthday, actually! Her desire to open the shop stems from her passion for the fiber arts. She saw it as a way to connect further with the community, while providing a service that she had not seen before.
When planning her next project, she was often deterred by the amount of yarn she needed to buy. As a sock knitter, she often would finish her socks with half of a skein remaining. Why make two identical pairs when you can buy more yarn instead? Buying an extra skein of yarn for a sweater “just in case” made sense, but then what? There are just too many leftovers without a purpose.
agirlandherwool was born where you choose the skein of yarn you buy for your project. With an assortment of colors to choose from, pre-made kits and endless possibilities, you’ll never have to limit your options. We’re excited to see what you create!
