Formerly known as Once Upon A Corgi, Plies & Hellhounds Yarn is a small team of one woman and her two corgis creating luxury hand dyed and hand painted yarns and fibers that will satisfy your speckled, variegated and semi-solid needs. 

 

Gabrielle Gergler learned how to crochet and knit as a young child from her mother, an avid afghan crocheter, and carried the craft through her young adult life from high school to college. The fiber bug hit hard in early 2013 with the discovery of Ravelry and indie dyed yarn, soon she was knitting, spinning, crocheting and dyeing.

In 2016 Once Upon a Corgi Handmade opened their first online shop and dove into the fiber world full time. Then in the midst of the insanity that was 2020 we went through a rebranding and are now Plies & Hellhounds Yarn

Our goals as a yarn peddler is to bring new fibers into the rotation of knitters, crocheters, weavers and sometimes spinners by seeking out different bases with fiber content including, but not limited to, Corriedale, Polwarth, BFL and hopefully many more.        

You can follow this fiber journey on Instagram @pliesandhellhounds or @Gabigails or subscribe to the Plies & Hellhounds YouTube Channel to see what we are knitting, spinning, sewing, reading and what Tennis Ball is the pick of the week.

 

Gabby is a born and raised Nutmegger, living and working in Central Connecticut with her husband Jake, two corgis and the judgmental cat, Jax.
