Yaarnen is a tiny lighthouse somewhere up north near the shores of Scandinavia. Run by a solo female keeper, it’s full of light, painted white, and jam-packed with yarn.
It only exists in my mind but who cares, it’s such a romantic idea of a girl keeping a lighthouse. Someone has imaginary friends, I have an imaginary lighthouse. My shelter, my hideaway place, my treasure island.
The name itself is actually a misspelling of “yarnen”, which means “made of yarn”. I have a thing about double vowels, which make me think of something Nordic, Scandinavian, Hygge. I’ve been fascinated with Scandinavia for years, and all of my dreams of living a cozy life belong there. Yaarnen is my love song to cold weather, slow fashion and everything YARN.
