We are dyers of colorful yarns. Thank you for joining us on our exploration of fiber and color.
We approach the creation of our products with a research based process. We get our inspiration from the work of influential people in STEM fields and their discoveries of colors, forms, and structures.
It is our mission to be constantly developing new colorways and techniques based on the natural world around us. Our explorations and experiments inspire us to bring you intriguing colors and patterns. In addition to developing our spectrum, we focus on learning and exploring the entire process of fiber crafting, from animal to finished products. One of the main goals of The Fiberists is to educate the fiber and craft world about the accomplishments of people in STEM fields who we believe should receive additional recognition
We have over a decade of experience dying fabrics and fibers and working in other fiber arts. We use this knowledge to bring you fibers that have been dyed through the appropriate methods based on their individual chemistry. Our process yields yarns and rovings with vibrant colors.
