Welcome to Old Rusted Chair

Let’s make the yarny magic happen.

Focusing on small batches and big color since 2016

I’m Lou, a Tennessee-based indie yarn dyer offering hand dyed yarns to color-loving creatives. I meld my mission for making eye-catching colorways with my advocacy work as a clinic escort for Planned Parenthood. 

I’m so glad you’re here—I can’t wait to empower you to create lasting, one-of-a-kind pieces!
