Trudy Van Stralen developed a reputation in the hand dyeing community in the mid 70's. Trudy dyed with natural dyes, creating wonderful color ranges of wool fleece, mohair fiber and yarn. She sold her dyed fibers from her small shop, in the same location that Louet North America now calls home.
Trudy had learned to knit at a young age during the post WWII years in Holland, and in the 1970’s, as a fiber artist, dyeing wool and yarn, she taught herself to spin and weave. In the late 90’s Trudy began creating hand knitted garments and patterns, bringing her back to her roots growing up in Holland. Trudy often jokes that she knits in “dutch.” Today, Trudy continues developing knitting patterns with her team of knitters and designers, as well as designing new yarns for Louet.
