My name is Lynette Connors and I'm the head dye mistress here at Willamette Valley Wool Company in Eugene, OR. I first experimented with dyeing way back in 2009 with cheap wool and powdered drink mixes in my home kitchen. I've come a long way since then! I've gone through several home kitchens, a couple of home garage spaces, a storage unit and a rented dye kitchen to get to my current space, my new professional dye kitchen. I've been dyeing seriously with professional grade dyes and fine yarns and fibers since 2013 and selling my hand dyeing since 2014.
I now have a professional dye kitchen and small retail space here in Eugene where all the dyeing and processing of the yarn and fiber is done. I have open hours in my small retail space for knit and spin days, classes, and fiber retail therapy. You can also find me vending at fiber festivals and doing trunk shows around the Pacific Northwest. Watch my events page at, and like our Facebook page and Instagram for the most up to date news.
