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, 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.

About Us
About Us

I personally dye all of the yarn that we sell, from a small home studio. I love experimenting with new colours and yarn bases to bring you quality products that spark your creativity and lead to finished products you can admire forever. 

Occasionally joining the team are my partner Dan (graphic design, soaking yarn, post office runs) and our furry daughter Marceline (moral support, studio loaf).
