Behind Olann is Jess Kavanagh’s desire to create a sophisticated color palette of ethically produced and spun yarns in Ireland. The purpose of this indie dyer is to offer skeins of natural fibers hand-dyed using experimental techniques and to recapture the spirit of an era. Olann is a look back to a time when quality, craft and sustainability were valued over mass production.
Jess works in her studio in County Cavan with small productions, taking care of both materials and process. Under the premise that small and unique are good, each skein of Olann is a unique piece created by and for slow knitters who appreciate every step of the process.
