About us


Welcome!   Located in Orlando, FL and specializing in self striping yarns, we're trying new things everyday! 

String Theory Colorworks started out in 2009 with the fateful words "Hey, honey!  Wouldn't it be cool if..?"  Don't ever say such things to an engineer :)  I started dyeing self striping yarn that weekend with the help of my husband, MacGyver-ski (as my mother calls him).  With my husband being an electrical engineer, and me being a biology major, we decided that all of our yarns should have "science-y" names.  And a lot of our colorways interconnect in ways that only make sense to my insane brain.  We moved to New Mexico in July of 2012.  Our little family expanded with the birth of our daughter in October 2012.  It's been interesting working around her needs, but so far, so good!  Our second child, a boy, was born in April, 2016.  We moved back to Florida in October 2016, and have been happily living in Orlando every since.

I do all the dyeing, prep, and packaging for all of our yarns while my husband works at his new full time job--I try my best to get everything ready on time, but with just me doing everything, sometimes I get a bit behind!  

I'm happy to answer any and all questions, so feel free to send me an email using the contact button on the top menu bar.
