OnTheRound artisan handspun yarn, mill spun yarn, and fiber is hand dyed in unique colorways using soft and luxurious 100% wool fibers. All of my yarn and fibers are dyed in small batches out of my small studio in Owls Head, Maine. My handspun yarn is spun slow and steady on my Ashford Wheel, always with the knitter in mind. You will find OnTheRound yarn is both beautiful & functional-perfect for knitting, crochet, weaving, and felt craft projects.
My name is Rachel Jones and I am the maker at OnTheRound. I have been knitting since I was about 7 years old. My Nana, a very talented knitter, taught me the knit stitch and it wasn't until college that I learned to purl. I've been making things my entire life, but after I started knitting seriously in college I knew that fiber art was for me.
After graduating with a degree is Art Education and minors in Studio Art and Art History, I decided to pursue my career in fiber. I worked at One Lupine Fiber art for almost 4 years making Nuno felt scarves and other felt accessories. It was at One Lupine that I fell in love with wool, and was inspired to have my own fiber business.
OnTheRound was established in January of 2008 and I have been dyeing, felting, spinning, and knitting everyday since. Last year I quit my night job and have been working full time out of my tiny home in Owls Head, Maine.
