In 2014, Jonathan Berner began dying yarn full time under the trade name MJ Yarns. From his blog: "The people in this magical world of yarn have been warm and welcoming and I can barely begin to express the excitement and gratitude that I have for the people that have made this possible."
MJ Yarns' unique dye process creates yarn that can be manipulated in any number of ways to create fun spirals on socks or fantastic effects on almost any project you can imagine. Suggestions for using the spiral are included in a free, simple sock pattern from MJ Yarns.
Each of his colorways feature short color runs, which reduces the color pooling prevalent not only with mass produced, space-dyed yarns but also in many hand-painted yarns. Their unique process takes more time, but that effort is well worth it for the customers who find they don't need to work from two different skeins to avoid color pooling.
