Send The Wool Dispensary to YarnCon - Chicago's Premier Yarn & Fiber Event. We hand dye yarn and need your help filling our dye pots!

The Wool Dispensary (TWD) was founded in 2011 by the dyeing & design duo Sam Boice and Bree Miller. The two work together to create kettle dyed yarns & complementary knitting patterns.

TWD would like to launch a Kickstarter project to participate in YarnCon as an official yarny vendor. We want to represent our new company by creating a line of hand dyed yarns inspired by the Circus.

Our yarns are extremely limited and special. Sourcing from small farms and mills we plan to support U.S. farm industry as much as we can. There are no formal dye lots, which means that each time we dye our yarns, they turn out a little bit different.

YarnCon is Chicago's own yarn-centric exhibition -- a place to promote, sell, and celebrate the yarny arts, scheduled for Saturday, September 24, 2011 at the Pulaski Park Fieldhouse in Chicago, IL.

What we need is support to get us there: yarn for dying, dye for the yarn and transport, displays and labels to tell you what we're selling! And other miscellaneous business expenses that appear along the way.
