What The Flock..
What The Flock is the brainchild of Joe Cole. This business came to fruition due to Joe's love for all things creative and fun. In 2011 while he was searching through his local yarn shop at the time and not finding anything that exactly fulfilled his excitement for color and fiber. He slowly started experimenting with wool yarn and simple food coloring for dyeing. This is when the bug had bitten him and it's been a nonstop ride ever since.
