Explore the magic of Assigned Pooling with Dawn Barker!  

Dawn Barker is the creative force behind the new knitting technique, assigned pooling, which she created to reconcile her passion for dyeing variegated yarns and her disdain for knitting them. Through countless hours exploring the dynamics of color pooling and textured stitches, she developed this compelling knitting method that remarkably mimics embroidery on knitted fabric. Using assigned pooling and other intriguing ways of producing wearable art, she designs clean modern knitwear in classic, deeply saturated colors. A lifelong fiber lover and artist, Dawn started Barker Wool in 2017 to combine hand-dyed fine yarns with her innovative knitting designs, and began collaborating with Madelinetosh in 2022 on a special line of AP colorways

We are thrilled to host Dawn in the shop for
