Hello, my name is Tam!

I am a Californian living in The Netherlands with my Dutch husband and our two amazing kids.  I started this company in 2019 when I was pregnant with my daughter and landed in the hospital at 33 weeks.  I was required to stay on bed rest in my hospital room until I could be induced at 37 weeks, which meant I had four weeks to watch Netflix and knit.  It was in those four weeks that I remembered how much I loved to knit and I decided to start this company.

I have been knitting since I was six, but never fully immersed myself into it until my hospital stay and the Covid-19 lockdown that immediately followed.  It was during that lockdown that I also discovered my love for dyeing yarn.  I went to university for studio arts and have always loved color theory, and dyeing yarn was the perfect way to bring two of my passions together.

I spent nine years running a small business (Sugarlips Cakes) with my husband, and after we sold it I knew that this company was my next step.  I have always loved being a small business owner and am so grateful that I get to spend my days doing what I love.  I am so appreciative for all of the support and thank you all for letting me do what I love! 💛
