About Us

Vegan Yarn is a dye studio based in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada. We dye yarn and fibre for knitters, crocheters, spinners and weavers. This is our blog.





Free Shipping Sale

We’ve got free shipping on now through this weekend on orders within Canada and internationally with a minimum order of $60 using coupon code: ‘FREESHIP’. Enjoy friends!

We work mindfully to create beautiful things that exist for more than their own sake, that do not exist at the expense of someone’s happiness but as works of art that are made of freedom, compassion and joy.

Meet the Team


Heidi is the founder of Vegan Yarn, and a knitter to the core.


This is the guy you meet at yarn shows as ‘that guy who can knit'(!) He’s also really great at building yarn displays, and being a kick-butt business partner.


Aka ‘The Lowly Peon’. This is the guy who hovers over the vats of dyeing yarn and talks to them. He’s also an excellent turbo-tagger and dye vat maker.


At Vegan Yarn’s online shop, you can find everything you need to get started on your project!
We have twelve different hand dyed yarn bases ranging from lace to super bulky, organic & fair trade naturally pigmented cotton yarn in four different weights, as well as a selection of handspinning fibres, notions, tools, knitting needles, crochet hooks and buttons.
