Hi fiber friends! My name is Lauren and I'm the owner and dyer behind Treehouse Knits.
I began my dye journey in 2018 with another hand dyed yarn company. In June of 2020, I took the leap and developed Treehouse Knits.
The name Treehouse Knits comes from the street name, Treehouse Lane, where I lived growing up. I knew I wanted to pay homage to my childhood home, which is where my textile creativity first bloomed.
My mom was a single mother and worked out of our home as a seamstress and designer. The hum of a sewing machine was most definitely the soundtrack of my childhood. She ranged in projects from simple alterations to ornately beaded bridal gowns. I used to play in the fabrics and dream up designs and color combinations with her.
While I did not share her love for sewing, it ultimately led to my learning to knit at the age of 10. Now at the age of 29, I suppose you could say my career path was a long time coming.
My style tends to be feminine while maintaining earthy connections and tones. Because of this, I love to draw a lot of my colorway inspiration from the ultimate color source- nature!
