About The Purl Scout
My name is Victoria, I am the owner and dyer of Purl Scout Yarns I live in Philadelphia, PA with my kitties Ares and Artemis. I am a professional circus artist and circus coach. I’ve been a knitter for about four years now. I am a self taught knitter who also crochets, spins, weaves and designs knitwear! Socks are my comfort knit and I almost exclusively knit with fingering weight yarns.
When thinking about dyeing I knew that I wanted to go the natural route. I wanted a safer process for myself and my home and most importantly for the environment. I also wanted to explore using natural dye extracts like acid dyes; bright, fun and variegated. My dyes are extracted from things like food scraps i.e.. avocado pits; or using natural dye extracts purchased which come from various things like trees, bugs, etc. My goal as a dyer is to provide fun colors and variations themed off of things I love (like Sailor Moon)! I offer eco friendly yarns that are superwash and non superwash!
