Meet Clare, Blue Thistle Fibers CEO

Welcome to my small-batch hand-dyed yarns at Blue Thistle Fibers.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved knitting. Like most knitters, the first stitch I learned from my grandmother was to knit & pearl. Over the years, as I would deploy out on months-long patrols during my military service, I used my free time to add more and more stitches. I finished my first sweater while patrolling in the Arctic Circle, which was really useful! 

Our lives are filled with chapters. I bet you can relate. This is the chapter where I build a business post-military and infuse it with all things home and history. This is the part where I dispel the myths that Appalachia is a textile-poor region and shine a light on the amazing women that came before me: the knitters, the weavers and the quilters, the makers and the do-ers who did much with little, whose very grit and gumption I feel as a maker and entrepreneur here in West Virginia.

I’m excited to offer you a sample of this place in the form of Appalachian hand-dyed yarns, crafted with love and passion, for your own creative projects.

Explore our small-batch yarn and unlock infinite possibilities for your knitting creations. Let Blue Thistle Fibers be your gateway to a world of colorful inspiration wherever you are in your life’s chapter.

I can’t wait to see what you make!
