About Us

The ModeKnit Yarn Team!

Kathleen, Layla, Annie & Becca (Dyer Emeritus)

Welcome to our company!  We’re small, but hard working, and we know how to have a good time on the road!

Annie Modesitt wanted to create a line of hand dyed yarns in the semi-solids and color blends that she finds so inspiring.

After 30+ years as a Hand Knit Designer, Craft Author and Hand Knit Teacher, Annie had some firm ideas about creating colors that would work well in MANY combinations, allowing anyone to feel like an absolute color maven.

Annie will be stepping back from the biz for most of 2018 and 2019, a cancer diagnosis has slowed her down, but she fully intends to recover so she can DYE AGAIN!

Kathleen Pascuzzi comes to ModeKnit Yarn a knitter with more than 20 years of experience in retail and sales management.

Kathleen can tell you ANYTHING about how our colors work together, what is the best pattern for your project (even if it’s NOT one of ours…) and by the time you’ve left the booth you’ll be best friends!

Layla Mongeon joined us as a part-time dyer more than a year ago (WOW) and now she’s so much part of MKY it would be hard to imagine dyeing without her joyous face.  (Actually, now she’s a slightly BETTER paid part time dyer!  Huzzah!)

While Annie is out of commission, Layla will be stepping up her game and go a little wild!  I’m so excited to see what she comes up with, while continuing with our beautiful, established palette. 

We’re switching to an order-by-available-inventory system instead of our original Dye On Demand, we’re sorry if that affects any of our customers badly, do contact us and perhaps there’s a way to work around any issues!

We work from St. Paul, Minnesota, so you’re certain to make something nice with our yarn!
