Welcome to Willamette Valley Wool Company! Formerly known as DragynKnyts Fiber and Dyeworks.
My name is Lynette Connors and I'm the head dye mistress here at Willamette Valley Wool Company in Eugene, OR. I first experimented with dyeing way back in 2009 with cheap wool and powdered drink mixes in my home kitchen. I've come a long way since then! I've gone through several home kitchens, a couple of home garage spaces, a storage unit and a rented dye kitchen to get to my current space, my new professional dye kitchen. I've been dyeing seriously with professional grade dyes and fine yarns and fibers since early 2014 and selling my hand dyeing since later the same year.
I now have a professional dye kitchen and small retail space here in Eugene where all the dyeing and processing of the yarn and fiber is done, and I'll soon be open for knit and spin days, classes, and fiber retail therapy. I'll be selling my dyed product as well as some notions and other fiber related goodies here, too. We currently have open hours and social Stitch-n-Spin times on Thursdays from 5 pm to 8 pm, and Saturdays from 11 am to 4 pm. The shop is sometimes closed when I have to travel for fiber festivals or have personal matters to attend to.
