Who Am I?

Hi! My name is Brooke and I am the founder and designer of Fully Spun. I graduated from George Washington University in 2014 with a B.F.A. in Interior Design. I also work in the Northern Virginia area in the Interior Design industry. I learned to knit and crochet from my mother growing up, but began to explore spinning and dyeing yarn in college. This is where I fell in love with color, and fell in love with wool as a canvas to play with color.

My Passion

#welovecolor is more than just a motto, it is the way I live. My joy is in seeing a specific combo in my head and being able to bring it to life. A lot of that, a little of this. It lights my fire! My hope is that my yarn can light a little fire in your soul too when you run across that special skein. I believe that through our craft we can create items that share a piece of who we are with a loved one or show some of our personality off to the world.

The Process

Here at Fully Spun, I hand-dye wool roving. I then ship it to a mill, and wait anxiously for it to be returned to me as beautiful yarn with a wonderful marled effect. Every strand has multiple colors and the colors fade into each other in variety of color gradients. This yarn is perfect and intended for use by all fiber artists. I dye all of my colorways to create a 'fractal' effect, a repeating, varied, color effect that repeats within itself, and creates that 'classic' handspun look. This also means that our skeins are sisters, not twins. The spinning process stretches the roving, meaning that the dominant color changes from skein to skein. This is part of the charm! The PostScript line of yarn is dyed in a variety of traditional methods to create solids to match perfectly with your skein of Fully Spun!
