More About Leo & Roxy Yarn Co.
Leo & Roxy Yarn Co. is the pride and passion of Canadian indie-dyer, Jolyn Gardner, looking to get their fibre freak on!
First, to clear things up, we’re not Leo or Roxy – they’re just our ‘animal inspiration’.
LEO is a rambunctious, Rambouillet and sibling of ‘Socks’ and ‘Gansey’ at the Gardner homestead. While a bit young yet, all will be donating their yearly shearings for an up-and-coming farm to needle product line of custom harvested, spun, and dyed yarn provided direct from our farm Baaaaaad Boys lol -stay tuned.
As for ROXY, she’s our colour mascot – a Green Cheek Conure with some serious sass – who’s now growing into her colours and inspiring our need to be colourfully creative, and have fun doing so (and occasionally bite but we’re working on that 😉).
We hope you’ll love our yarn as much as we love creating it.
