Gigi Bonin Hand Dyed Yarn. Sweet. Soft. Sassy. Savvy.

As the owner and dyer of Gigi Bonin Hand Dyed Yarns, I love vibrant colors and soft, squishy yarn. My color forays take me from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again…and (to paraphrase Edith P.) I regret nothing! I am currently experiencing a sock/fingering weight crush. Summer popsicles have influenced my recent color choices, although I revere more subdued palettes as well.

My adventures in dyeing currently find me preparing for the Indie Untangled Trunk Show in October. Soooo excited!

Happy knitting and bonne chance.

Color Craze Yarn & Fiber

I am Charisse from Color Craze Yarn and Fiber. I’ve been the dyer behind Color Craze for about 11 to 12 years now, recently expanding from dyeing yarn along with fiber. I love what I do as every indie dyer does, while supporting other indie dyers as it is hard to resist. I get to pick a project and play the fun part and dye what’s in my mind instead of standing in front of a color wall and thinking what goes with what.

What’s in the shop? There are fiber braids of all colors and hand-dyed fingering-weight sock yarn of Superwash Merino/Cashmere/nylon (MCN), Superwash Merino and much more.

Spring Colorways Shop Update!

Kim at Kim Dyes Yarn has been busy dyeing up a line of new colorways for spring and is excited to share them with you in a shop update. You’ll fall for bright and fun colorways like Bed of Iris, Beach House, and Peaches on a variety of yarn weights from fingering to bulky.

Also in this shop update are new shawl length skeins on Croissant sock, a 100% superwash merino fingering yarn. Each skein has 650 yards–enough to make numerous shawl patterns. AND! Bulky skeins are instock, now with 150 yards for the same price as the old skeins of 105 yards. I heard your concern that 105 yards wasn’t enough for many projects and decided to make the bulky Cream Puff Superwash Merino yarn even better.

Spinners, watch for colorways on Sparkly Superwash Merino, Superwash Targhee, & BFL/Silk.

The shop update goes live at Noon EST on Friday, April 14th. Thank you!

Black Wolf Ranch and Fiber

Hello everyone. We are Black Wolf Ranch and Fiber. I just wanted to tell you a little bit about us. We create homegrown yarns that preserve, support and sustain the U.S. ranching lifestyle. We are passionate about Alpaca and domestic textiles and we source our yarns with fiber from the ranch and from local ranchers in our home state of Montana.

Our passion for this lifestyle gives us the inspiration we need to design unique yarns and dye colors to accent the natural colors found in the Alpaca, Merino, Cormo and BFL yarns we create. All yarns are sourced and milled in Montana or the US, all dyeing is done here on the Ranch. Our loyal customer base follows us across the US as we tour fiber festivals. At each show we share our story, our yarns, and photos of our animals and introduce new customers to our luxurious yarns.

We just debuted our new spring colors. Come check them out!
