Kelbourne Woolens was founded in 2008 by friends Courtney Kelley and Kate Gagnon Osborn.

Kate and Courtney met while working in a local yarn store in Philadelphia, PA; Courtney was a new mom and Kate was in her final year of grad school. Together they founded Kelbourne Woolens at Kate's kitchen table, and have been working side by side ever since.
