Drama Llama Knitting Company produces handspun and Hand-dyed yarns, as well as knitting accessories and patterns.

Our dream: By moving towards selling yarn from local-ish, ethically sourced fiber, we hope you bring your sweater a little bit closer (figuratively speaking) to the sheep it came from. (Or alpaca, or goat, or bundle of flax!)

For those about to craft, we salute you.

I tried my hand at dyeing a gradient yarn using Wilton food color paste  for the orange and RIT Dye for the black. They ended up looking like Tiger Static, but I like them. 

They’re Halloweeny socks for one of my witchiest friend for Christmas.

Woah I love these. 


Amazing hand dyed yarn inspired by cats. You can read an interview with the dyer here http://knittingrobin.blogspot.ca/2013/11/an-interview-withcaroline-sommerfeld.html.

I love Ancient Arts and their Meow Yarn Collection is great - A portion of the proceeds go to the Meow Foundation - a charity for abandoned cats. 

Dyed up about 18 ounces of fiber yesterday - getting pumped for Knit City

This squishy punta wool is going to be spun up and plied with super-soft Vancouver Island alpaca. 

Freshly dyed - cooling on the window sill.


I am so in love with this yarn like it;s a full blown crush. The little flecks of brown, the lovely pastel colour. It’s just sigh. I’m so happy I treated myself to this yarn.

And it’s nice that I know the person who makes it to.

Gourmet Crafter: Sock 

Colourway : Robin egg 

Yay! More local yarn! Not only are the Gourmet Crafter colorways amazing, but the yarn is high-quality. The softest squishiest socks you’ll ever wear.

Some of the left over wool from my Confection yarn, navajo-plied. 

I’m going to put this on my table cast on to a pair of needles so people can see what it’s like, knitting with handspun. 

Wool plied with Llama. I kettle-dyed all the wool together but each skein came out slightly different! I’m really pleased about it. 

Can’t wait to put this yarn on my table @ Knit City in October!


I dyed this yarn with food coloring and finally found a sock pattern that really shows off the colors. Aquaphobia socks by Crystal Flanagan.

I love how this is striping! The colors are gorgeous. 

One last addition to my photodump: A before and after shot!

Now it’s time to get crackin’ on my product line for Knit City!

This cotton was handspun in Mali, Africa, and dyed by Drama Llama.
