About Us

 

Welcome and thank you for visiting the WSK shop.


I started Western Sky Knits in 2007 with my friend Heather (western sky knits TX ) as a small shop on Hyena Cart- we sold hand knits and yarn. Since then we have grown and focused only on hand dyed yarn.


I live in Montana on our family owned and run cattle ranch with my husband and three boys.

On this family ranch we run 1,500 head of cattle on 25,000 acres.  The ranch was originally homestead in 1877 by Norwegian immigrants and today the Voldseth family, which are the fourth and fifth generations living on this land, own and work the ranch. The ranch lies partly in the legendary Crazy Mountains and partly in the beautiful Castle Mountains.

All my yarns are dyed here on the ranch in my small studio (converted from the old ranch bunkhouse!)

 

-WSK yarn and fiber is hand dyed in small batches - with different techniques like kettle dyeing and hand painting. 
- I do my best to take accurate photographs (in natural light) but there may be variations between different computers or devices.
-Depending on the colorway there may be a small amount of bleeding in the first few washes.
