Wanderlust Fiber Arts

Be Bold. Be Daring. Free Your Knits.

Wanderlust Fiber Arts by Ashleigh Wempe creates original knitwear designs with an emphasis on eye catching colorwork and wearable finished products. Each design is inspired by the powerful itch to travel and explore that resides in all of us. Wanderlust Fiber Arts also collaborates with independent yarn dyers to produce special yarn and pattern kits for knitters.


Welcome to Wanderlust Fiber Arts! I'm Ashleigh, the creative force behind Wanderlust Fiber Arts. Join me as I create new designs, knitting tutorials, design tips and tricks, interviews with fellow makers across the globe, and dream about traveling again someday.

The vast majority of my patterns are inspired by my travels through South America, Europe, Asia, and the United States. I've partially traded in my adventurous travels for knitting needles and yarn while my toddler naps, but a girl can dream to travel once again, can't she?



Awesome photos from gallivanting through South America... Anyone interested in going back and exploring with me?

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.
