Welcome to my journey as Co-Founder of Little Oak Studio, Inc.

Our Kickstarter campaign fell flat, but we have gained support to continue, on a smaller scale. The yarn has arrived for a new cloth.
The natural alpaca colors are just stunning, and we are excited to see what Vermont grown indigo will look like over the creamy yellow-white yarns.
We included some paint chips when we gave our dyer the yarn, but those chips began as pure white, and no bleach will be used on this yarn to make it a bright white. The resulting color may be more of a teal blue.
Jennifer Johnson has studied natural dye plant cultivation and processing as well as dyeing processes with diverse fibers. Her studies, both here and abroad, add a rich wisdom to her work as an organic farmer in Vermont. She produced the madder red yarns for Winter Moose in 2015. Below are some results of her work with Vermont grown plants. We are excited to see what our yarns will look like in August!
