About Us

Yarn Hero Fiber Arts is a colorful boutique for the knitter, spinner, crocheter, weaver, and fiber artist. Featuring unique hand-dyed, millspun yarns that work up into fun gradient stripes, traditional hand-dyed yarn, handspun yarn, and hand-dyed spinning fibers. Yarn Hero is a one-woman-owned business run by Lynnell Koser out of her home studio in Frederick, Maryland.

Yarn Hero’s signature yarn line is their ColorMix Yarn collection, a process in which the wool is hand painted first, and then sent to a local, family-run spinning mill to spin into yarn. The result is a yarn that mimics handspun yarn with exciting color changes, marling, gradients, and long striping patterns. Make sure to check out Yarn Hero’s other yarn collections: Stipple – a solid yarn that stripes with specks of color, Opaque – a traditionally dyed semi-solid, and Etch – a single ply yarn with fun gradient stripes. Yarn Hero also offers unique handspun yarn, loaded with texture and color. Mostly bulky and super bulky, these yarns are perfect for unique weaving projects, as well as big chunky knits and crochet. Lastly, for the spinner, Yarn Hero offers hand-dyed wool tops, full of color and inspiration. I hope you will take a look around, and as always, feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. (Or just to say hello!)
