PROJECTS WE LOVE
Brighten Up Your Dreary Days!
Arial is our 100% Superwash Merino light fingering yarn base. Merino wool LOVES the dye. It just sucks it right up and the result is vibrant, rich, deep color. This base is quite fine (use needle sizes 0-2 and hook size C-E) and so the yardage in a single cake goes far! It is a great option for lace projects but is strong enough for socks. The featured projects were done using a large evolution (above) and a small evolution (below) and both are on sale for the next 3 weeks at our Mason Showroom.
Showroom hours are Tuesdays from 10-6 and Saturdays from 12-5 with additional times by appointment.
The showroom will be closed January 28th to attend the Wine and Wool yarn show at the Sandhill Crane Vineyards in Jackson Michigan. We hope you will join us there instead!
*Note* The sale on Arial applies only to sales at our showroom in Mason.

Twisted was started in 2005 as a way to help support my family while I was a stay-at-home mom until I went back to work. Eventually I realized I was at work. I think it's safe to say that Twisted is going to be around for a while!
I was lucky to start selling my handspun around the time Etsy was catching on. I learned a lot about yarn and knit fabrics and what I wanted them to look like. This information was crucial to the development of my current process. Soon I was selling lots of striping sock yarn (mostly Arial and Duchess). Demand grew and so did Twisted. Aggie came to work with me. She could skein so precisely and measure dyes so accurately! (I still miss her. But she is now a stay-at-home mom and volunteer for animal rescue and I wish her well!) While she was here we moved to our current studio space and switched to our own website. My mother, Anne, is even more experienced with computers than she is with knitting (very!). She helped a ton with the new site which allows for more options, customization and flexibility. She also does our sample knitting and lots of random yarn and computer tasks. My husband does the books and washes the yarn. Both of our kids help out as their busy schedules permit. I love having a family business!
I was lucky to start selling from my own site about the time Ravelry was catching on. I think that might be the magic ingredient to my small business success! Thank you Casey and Jess! As much as I love striping sock yarn, I was longing to move in a new direction: Evolutions. This had been part of my master plan from the beginning, but sock yarn kept me busy until I couldn't hold it in any longer. Then I really needed more help! Anne Bohl joined the team and added her style and skills to the mix. She quickly became indispensable and is now a partner in the business. We are both so grateful for the opportunity to be able to put our families first while helping support our families and interact with the lovely yarn community! Thanks to all of you for making this possible!
The Twisted Studio was housed in the servant's quarters of my 150 year old Italianate home for seven years until we were bursting at the seams. We are now located around the corner in a great store called Kean's - a crafter's paradise that has been run by the same family for nearly 100 years. It is the cutest store around and we are lucky to have enough space there to do the dyeing for our webstore as well as a small but beautiful retail spot. So come see us, we'd love to meet you face to face! See store hours, address and contact info here.
