Meraki Studio strives to bring you unique colours ways on quality yarn bases sourced from around the world. Artisan yarn is what we do.
Who are we?
I'm Jo and I am the founder of Meraki Studio NZ. Born and bred in West Auckland, New Zealand until December 2015 when we packed up the family and moved to rural Whangarei on 1 1/2 acres of paradise.
I first started knitting in 2008 when I became a mum to my eldest daughter. She was a sleeper and I was bored. Many YouTube vids and a few swear words thrown in I cast off my first hat. Wasn't long before my creative streak took over and I started to investigate dyeing my own yarn. In September 2008 my first handpainted skein was created and there was no turning back.
In April 2012 I launched my Indie Dyeing business and haven't looked back. I need to create colour, it's a part of me, it's who I am.
Inspiration for Meraki colourways comes from many sources and expect the unexpected. I can not help but try new techniques and work on existing ones to see where the dye pot leads me.
