About

Akara Yarns is a small business owned by Rosemarie Tinapay. She works in the countryside in Bond Head, Ontario  Her specialty is dyeing indie dyed yarns with acid dyes usually on wool yarn. 

Her journey started when her son was born. She was simply looking for wool socks at the store and could not find any. Then, she thought, 'I can make that'. So she did. She went to the store, bought some wool and knitting needles, watched some Youtube videos and voila! The socks were made. 

Overtime, she found out about indie dyed yarns and got curious. So she experimented at home with food coloring and frosting colourings. Then, she fell in love with that. And the rest was history! 

You can find her yarns here on this website or you can check out the yarn shops that carry her yarn under the tab 'Stockists'.
