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've just moved into this new space and are still getting settled in, but soon I'll be announcing some regular open hours, social gathering times and classes.
I'll also still be vending at fiber festivals and doing trunk shows around the Pacific Northwest, so watch the events page here and on our Facebook page and Instagram for the most up to date news.
