Kettle dyed fibers are spun into beautiful yarns with long, unpredictable color changes and shifts, resulting in beautiful fabrics and garments.

Spincycle's wool is grown, processed, dyed & spun in the USA. The superwashed wool blend used in Dyed In The Wool, Dream State, and Plump consists of Rambouillet, Targhee & Merino breeds, raised primarily in South Dakota and Wyoming. The sheep that supply Spincycle's wool are 100% non-mulesed.

Kate Burge-Tibi & Rachel Price began Spincycle as a handspinnery in 2004, the two of them kettle dyeing and spinning small batches of yarn and vending at Bellingham's farmers’ market. Demand soon outpaced their ability to spin fast enough, and they wanted to find a way to pick up the pace. In other words, the industrial revolution started to sound like a good idea. Because both Kate and Rachel's first love was spinning, followed by knitting, they wanted to bring the look and feel of their variegated, kettle dyed yarns to the larger knitting world. In 2012, a cottage mill opened its doors just south of their Bellingham studio and dye house, and Spincycle proposed a collaboration. But there was no how-to manual for creating a millspun yarn that would maintain the look of handspun. After quite a bit of trial and error, Dyed In The Wool was born. And once such a unique yarn became widely available, designers took notice.

It's been a whirlwind ever since.

In the summer of 2017, to keep pace with demand for Dyed In The Wool, they bought that cottage mill, and moved into a warehouse that accommodated the mill, dye house and offices under one roof. And they hired their first employees!

In 2022, still growing, adding more yarn lines, developing new colorways, and watching the wave of new "pandemic knitters" coalesce into a real community of skilled knitters, Kate and Rachel decided to open their flagship store in downtown Bellingham.

By 2023, the team has grown to more than twenty hardworking folks. Spincycle Yarns provides a living wage, health insurance, 401(k) plan, profit sharing, and paid vacation. They are proud of our diverse staff and our predominantly female management and leadership team. They work hard to be a come-as-you-are workplace that respects and celebrates all identities.
