Cole Harmon was born in St Paul, MN to two artistic parents, one an interior designer and the other a painter, illustrator and animator. Cole began his career in luxury fibers when he moved to Alaska in 2017 with a summer job at the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer, AK. After working at the Musk Ox Farm, Cole was able to purchase a precision knitting machine and begin exploring various machine knit fabrics. Using traditional harvesting methods, small scale sourcing, cottage industry handspinning, a combination of new Fair Isle/lace styles, and a passion for qiviut, Cole founded Fly Away North Qiviut Co. in 2018. When not knitting, weaving, or spinning, Cole enjoys volunteering for sled dog races and spending time with his own retired sled dogs Nome, Relay, Witchey, and Char.
