Hi I’m Janis, the dyer and co-founder of Queen City Yarn.
Thank you for your interest in stocking our yarns!
Each of our ten bases is named for a neighborhood in the Queen City and range from lace-weight Madison Park Mohair to single-ply South Park Super Bulky. Our fingering-weight NoDa Sock and Biddleville DK are our two most popular bases. Although each base has its unique characteristics, the superwash merino is next-to-skin soft and makes these yarns a great choice for sweaters, baby knits, shawls, socks and other accessories. Coleman, our silk and linen blend, is perfect for summer garments.
Our colors are inspired by our beautiful surroundings and the breathtaking places we have visited. While we dye each color to be beautiful on its own, we also strive to design coordinating colorways as well as colors that contrast beautifully with one another. We want to make choosing colors for your projects easy, whether they will be a gorgeous fade or a perfect color pop.
WE CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE WITH YOU!
Our process begins with dying beautiful handpainted colorways. As makers, we fall in love with these skeins, but sometimes struggle to find ways to use them. We wanted to make choosing colors for your projects easy, so we have created coordinating tonals that work effortlessly with the handpaints. These coordinating tonals are great if you need a second or third color for a project. We also dye contrasting tonals that make the handpainted colorways really pop - perfect for color work or a striped project.
Getting Started with Wholesale
Local yarn stores are SO important to the continued growth of our creative community. Queen City Yarn would not exist today if Christen and I had not met at a knitting group hosted by one of our local stores.
That's why when it comes to selling wholesale we want to start you off on the right foot!
We've put together a wholesale starter pack for this reason. It's a well-rounded mix of our best sellers and tried and true colors. Want to build your collection out more? We've put together a supplementary collection of more fan-favorites, sure to make your in-store display pop.
