I'm Mckenzie! I'm a queer, fat, Chicanx, femme #grannypunx | #abuelapunx. I'm was born and raised in California and recently moved to Portland, Oregon with a minor (6 year!) pit stop in Boston, Massachusetts. Before Boston, I lived in the San Francisco Bay Area where I volunteered in a lot of community garden spaces and worked at my LYS, both of which introduced me to and sparked my interest in natural dyeing. While living in Boston, my love for wool, color, and plants, as well as a family legacy of entrepreneurship encouraged me to start Emtothethird Yarn Co. Now my small business not only focuses on naturally dyed yarn but also illustration work!
