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.
