Kate Selene

I'm Kate, dyer of yarns and maker of anything toadstool!! I live in the
English countryside with my little family where I hand paint and dye a range
of variegated yarns that are packed with colour and speckles.
 I design knitwear, often for my two small people and often covered in
toadstools, so you will generally find me knitting, or covered in dye!

Knit Stitch Yarns

I'm Melanie. I hail from the south side of Denver, Colorado and I love cats,
hockey, and all things fiber. I started my fiber addiction by learning to crochet at a young age. A while after that I learned how to knit, dye, and spin. It's hard for me to choose a favorite since they all offer something very different. I love crocheting stuffed animals, knitting lace shawls, dyeing yarn and fiber in bright colors, and spinning the fiber into
something amazing!

Kaleidoscope DyeWorks

Ali is the owner and one woman show that is Kaleidoscope DyeWorks. After years of dying fibres and fabrics for fun, and with the encouragement of friends and family, she opened her Etsy shop in February of 2015. Bringing only the finest quality of Canadian yarns and fibres to the world market is both the goal and the passion behind Kaleidoscope. Ensuring that each skein is dyed to exacting and professional standards often means 18 hour days, but it is truly a labour of love. When she's not dying yarn from her home on the prairies of Northern Alberta, Ali can be found spinning, knitting, crocheting, and spending time with family.

Peepaloo Fields

Hi! I’m Shari and I make things.I am creative by nature and it’s clearly genetic because I come from a long line of crafty women and have one crafty 4 year old daughter who helps to dye the yarn that you see on my page. She loves to mix the colors and make rainbows, which is why most, if not all of my yarn is bright and cheery. I live in Colorado in the Mountains (well, in Littleton where I can SEE the mountains, but I count it anyways) with my husband and two monsters (a little girl and a little boy) and two Weiner dogs, Sarge and Tank.I started dyeing yarn earlier this year after seeing some amazing things and learning from an amazing local Colorado dyer - it was the best crafting class I had ever taken, except for my spinning class. I thought I made pretty things, so I tried selling them.And, well, here I am. I hope my yarn finds you well and brings you much happiness! Cheers!

Three Fates Yarns


Name: Stephania Fregosi
Birthplace: Seoul, South Korea
Hometown: Boston, MA
Current home: Salem, OR

I grew up in a house full of vibrant and colorful art. One of my parents has
authored and illustrated 11 folk-art children's books, the other has designed the sets for countless theatrical productions. I grew up in a creative home where anything from the clothes we wore to stain glassed windows were homemade, hand-painted or hand-built. From an early age, I learned to knit, sew and make a wide variety of things, allowing me to transform the notion of "I don't know how" to "How could I do that?" from an early age. We never dyed yarn at my house, but there was no reason in my
mind that I couldn't try it and even sell a few skeins.

I enjoy dyeing semi-solid yarns that capture a full range of tones in one note. This makes your eyes dance and seemingly the colors are alive.

If you need a little more information: three fates yarns was named one day when I was dreaming of owning my own yarn shop, a fantasy that took hold whenever my life seemed to be headed towards small town USA for good. I thought it would be cool to name a shop after some kind of knitting
goddesses, but as it happened, knitting comes much after greek gods and
goddess. Instead, I was lead to the goddesses of destiny, those that spin, 
cut and weave the thread of life in Greek mythology. It seemed very apt, as I was highly uncertain of what kind of career I'd have, or even what place my I'd live in from year to year. I put that in my heart and years later, when I had the opportunity, I started dyeing yarn. I only knew that it would
be addictive, but it has proven to be rewarding beyond measure.

Fox and Feather Yarn Co.

After spending years as a traditional artist, Monica Wilson decided to jump into a new medium of creativity, and her addiction to knitting began.  She soon became intrigued by the realization that every skein of yarn resembled a unique palette, and every garment turned into a wearable painting.  Armed with her lifelong passion for nature, Monica started dyeing her own yarn and soon realized she had a plethora of inspiration at her fingertips, which she could use to produce striking images in an imaginative way that captured her spirit.  She chose a name that would represent her inspiration perfectly while staying true to the craft of fiber arts, and so Fox and Feather Yarn Co was born. 

With a desire for creating yarns that creates an exceptional experience for customers, Fox and Feather Yarn Co aims to bring all the experiences of nature to you.  From Monica’s in home dye studio, to each hand twisted skein, to your front door, every step in the process is done with you in mind.  Without you, Fox and Feather Yarn Co would cease to exist. 


Stimpylab was founded by Lynn in the Summer of 2010, when she began dyeing
yarn as a creative outlet to her not always creatively-stimulating nine to five job as an intern at an architecture firm. Obsessed with knitting, she became interested in creating brightly colored yarn that couldn't be found in her Local Yarn Store. After graduating college in Philadelphia, she moved on a whim to Los Angeles and re-opened Stimpylab in the Fall of 2012. Stimpylab continues to be run entirely by Lynn - making it not exactly a
small business, more of a teeny-tiny micro business. When Lynn is not dyeing
yarn, she works at a small architectural firm in LA.
