Hand-Dyed Spinning Fiber

We spend a good portion of our waking hours treadling away at our spinning wheels and we know that sometimes it's heavenly and sometimes it's frustrating as heck and the fiber can make all the difference.
We get our fiber from multiple sources because we've found that one vendor might have the shiniest BFL while another has the finest Merino. We're just as picky about the dyes we use. Lanaset (also known as Sabraset) dyes are more expensive and complex to use than other acid dyes available to professional fiber artists, but they have the highest washfast and lightfast ratings and create stunningly complex colors.
In addition to the materials themselves, the dye process can really affect the spinning experience. It's important to us that our colorways are as pretty on the inside of the fiber as they are on the outside and that the fiber stays soft and fluffy and fun to spin. There's no secret to our methods for providing high-quality hand-dyed fiber — we're just extremely thorough, patient, and gentle!
We're guilty of mostly offering fibers we love to spin ourselves, but this list is changing (growing) all the time. Feel free to contact us if you're looking for something specific.
