About us

playing with yarn while working in science

My name is Chrissy and I am the one-woman show behind Hypothesis Yarns, the creative outlet of a cognitive psychologist who just can't stop thinking about yarn. I discovered knitting while I was in grad school and fell into dyeing when I moved to the lonely island of Newfoundland for postdoctoral work. I've now relocated to Nova Scotia for work, and the love of yarn followed me here.

My hope with Hypothesis Yarns is to inspire you with the spirit of curiosity-- the same spirit that drives me in both my scientific work and my exploration of colour.

Sorry, but we are not currently accepting any wholesale orders-- my day job is too demanding to allow the space in my schedule. Thank you for your interest!
