Appalachian Baby Design

Appalachian Baby Design creates designs for knitters, crocheters and weavers to hand make keepsake gifts for babies and their families.

Our Yarn

We use U.S. organic cotton yarn and U.S. wool yarn that is sourced from small farms and spun, twisted and dyed at family-owned mills; then work with a collective of fiber artists to develop designs that become heirlooms.

Artisan: Cathy Hyndman

Cathy Hyndman grew up as the youngest of five children in the small farming community of Randolph, Ohio. Her mother was an expert sewer and knitter who taught her to knit when she was young and was not always delighted when her student pirated away all the extra yarn in the house to make mittens…

"My daughter, who is crafter, says this is the best side gig in the world. That’s the way I feel.”
