Zen Yarn Garden's dye studio is based is Ontario, Canada and run by full time husband and wife team Roxanne and Neville Yeun. We take pride in providing the most luxurious fibres available for our yarns and dyeing them in a range of beautiful semi-solid and one-of-a-kind colourways.
Our yarn is special. We know that every hank you buy is destined to have many hours in your stash and on your needles before it becomes a garment or accessory item that you will wear proudly. With each skein, we strive to reflect the same passion that you have for your projects and craft in our yarns.
Neville Yeun (pictured left or top below) is our Lead Dyer, Production Manager & Color Chemist. He works hand in hand with our studio team to make sure that each hank of Zen Yarn Garden shines — whether you are buying a dozen for a sweater or a single treasured skein. Dyes are applied carefully and accurately to re-create colorways you love, while our painterly one-of-a-kind colourways reflect the artistry and celebration of the process. The depth, tone, and colour of Zen Yarn Garden is dyed on hand-picked, luxury yarn bases, spun in Italy and Canada.
Neville's wife and co-owner Roxanne Yeun (pictured right or bottom below) is our Creative Director. Responsible for managing the growth of our company and relationships with stores and customers across the world, Roxanne is constantly working to keep your attention through innovative new products and beautiful design collaborations.
Each order you place is hand-prepared, and takes between 6-8 weeks from the date of order to date of fulfillment.
