About Knerd String:
Knerd was born out of a transition period in Renee’s life when she decided to spend more time at home to focus on family and health by leaving the corporate world and working at her husband’s screen printing company. She quickly began printing yarn and knitting themed designs to meld her two crafts and began selling her wares online and at her local yarn shop in Colorado.
Her husband’s print shop closed a few years later due to a major mechanical failure, leaving Renee to decide whether to return to the corporate world or make Knerd her full-time job. Luckily, she chose Knerd and crowdfunded her way to her first trade show. Orders began flooding in, and Knerd has grown into the brand we see today. So where to go from there? Yarn, of course! Renee has now ventured into the colorful world of hand dyeing, using a variety of soft superwash yarns as her base to add even more color and life to the knitting world.
