About the Maker
"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul."
This raw and deep quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf speaks to my inner need to dream, design and create. Ever since I was little, I have felt the need to express myself through unleashing my creativity. Through high school, my medium was sewing and art. Once I reached University, I went through creative withdraw as my small space didn’t accommodate the set up required for pattern making. My journey then took me through to a time worn craft that my grandmother taught me when I was young. Knitting became my passion and my meditation. The repetitive process was calming and reassuring while filling that deep desire to create. There was something magical about being able to create a beautiful garment out of some fluff and sticks.
When my second child was born, I dug even deeper into my want to create and began dyeing my own yarn. I wanted the opportunity to help others on their creative journey and to help inspire others this positive and supportive community. I am so thankful that you I hope that you stay a while and find something that inspires you for your next project.

Origins of Campfiber Yarns
Campfiber Yarns began when I was on leave after my daughter was born. I found such therapy in creating and playing with color and loved the science and methodology behind dyeing.
The name “Campfiber Yarns” is a play on words with my last name of Camp, in combination with the idea that “yarns” can be another idea for “tales” or “stories”. After much thinking and deliberation, Campfiber Yarns was born.
About the Yarn
I want to design a shop that inspires you to imagine fearlessly and create beautifully. I strive to have a timeless and cohesive collection, with yarns that are gorgeous to work with, using yarns that create beautiful staple pieces to fit into many different designs. I dye skeins that I would love to use in my own projects, so you can be sure that each one is made with love and care.
Yarn bases are dyed using professional dyes and washed with a Eucalan Wool Wash to help condition and restore a bit of love to the fibers. Skeins are then dried, wound, and packaged, ready to start their new journey of creativity.
