About Waifu Yarns

Hello. I'm Leanna, the dyer behind Waifu 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

I started this journey using League of Legends splash arts, many of which are female. It was a joke at first, dyeing yarn based off of female video game characters and calling my yarn "waifu", but then it stuck. In early 2021 I became a huge BTS (kpop) fan and started to dye colors based off their photoshoots or music videos. I am now starting to expand to other kpop groups for inspiration. 

I am a full time mom to two girls. I use my precious extra time to dye yarn and knit, crochet, and cross stitch. I also work in a local yarn store three days a week. Waifu Yarns is my creative side hustle. 

I love my side hustle and I hope that all of you do too!
