About Gynx Yarns

Gynx Yarns is an independently-owned hand dyeing business providing beautiful colorways on a wide range of yarns. Gynx Yarns is run 100% by me, Laura Jinks Jimenez. I find inspiration all over, but a lot of my colorways are inspired by "nerdy" sources like video games, anime, and pop culture.

Gynx Yarns started as a part-time gig in the spring of 2011 during my last year of undergrad, and became a full-time endeavor in the beginning of 2012 after I had graduated.

I dye all of my yarns in my home in Dallas, TX, where I live with my husband and two adorable cats. I received a BFA in Fiber Arts from University of North Texas in December 2011.

The Podcast

In September of 2012, I was bored and decided to start a video podcast about my fibery adventures. There were a lot of knitting podcasts out there, but not many touched on dyeing, let alone focused on it. I decided to share my knowledge that I had gained in both formal training and experience with other people interested in dyeing, as well as my knitting, spinning, and other crafting endeavors. You can watch The Dyer's Notebook Podcast on my blog or on YouTube.
