Meet the Dyer

Classic, inspiring colors

Hello! My name is Alesha and I’m the dyer behind all the colors you see here at Yarn Nouveau.

I began my fiber journey at the age of 8 when my grade school teacher offered a crochet class before school and my mom promptly signed me up. I crocheted off and on for years, and also began cross-stitching and sewing. Did anyone else make their own Barbie clothes back in the day? 

My love of knitting began in 2002 on a road trip from Utah to Oregon. I’ve always loved working with my hands, and knitting quickly became a passion. I eventually ventured into hand dyed yarns and was instantly addicted. 

Here you will find tonal, solid, and very gently variegated colors. My goal is to create beautiful, inspiring colorways that will become staples in your handmade wardrobe.
