About Us

Jill Draper Makes Stuff is a truly handmade company. Each yarn is designed by Jill & spun exclusively for JDMS. Jill works with all domestic farms & mills to create breed specific yarns, made sheep to skein in the US, most of which are then hand dyed in her studio in upstate NY.

Each yarn in the JDMS line is designed to highlight the attributes of the fiber used & to make a long lasting & hard wearing yarn. You will find a large variety of wool types from toothy Cheviot in Valkill to the Superfine Merino in Ansel.

This year we are proud to share the first of hopefully many finished products. Shawls & blankets woven by hand from JDMS yarns. Jill worked with a weaver in CT to create these beautiful fabric piecers that use a mix of hand dyed & dyed in the wool yarn.

We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in 2022!
