Crave Yarn is the creation of owner/dyer Amor Valdez and is located in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Amor learned to crochet at her Grandmother’s knee at the tender age of 8 and carried her love of the craft through her career as an ethnographer. More often than not, she found herself knitting and crocheting personalized gifts for the friends that had emerged through the course of her research. It was a natural progression for Amor to make the the gift even more special by dying the yarn in her recipient’s favorite colors. From there CRAVE yarn was born. Amor says that her second career mimics her first in that it lets her ” indulge my love of people and reverence for the beauty present in human relationships and everyday ingenuity”.
