Waifu Yarn


Sunday March 10th
10am to 5pm


Local Indy dyer Leanna introduces us to her beautiful hand-dyed yarns. Waifu yarns are dyed in small batches inspired by videogame art and Kpop photography. Leanna will have both fingering and DK weight yarns in two different fiber available, as well as her custom stitch markers. Pop in and check out these not-to-be-missed, simply stunning yarns.



What is a "waifu"? Waifu is a term used for a fictional female character from non-live-action visual media (typically an anime, manga, or video game) to whom one is romantically attracted and/or whom one considers their significant other

Leanna started this journey using League of Legends splash arts, many of which are female. A joke at first, dyeing yarn based off of female video game characters and calling her yarn "waifu." But then it stuck. In early 2021 she became a huge BTS (kpop) fan and started to dye colors based off their photoshoots or music videos. Leanna's is now expanding to other kpop groups for inspiration. 

A full time mom to two girls, Leanna uses her precious extra time to dye yarn and knit, crochet, and cross stitch. She also works in a local yarn store three days a week. Waifu Yarns is Leanna's creative side hustle - she loves her side hustle and hopes you will too!
