Owner/Indie Dyer of Groovy Hues Fibers

Hi there! I am so excited to finally be a part of Indie Untangled. I don’t know what took me so long to get here, but, here I am! I am Suzanne, and dyeing is my absolute passion, and ultimate dream, and I can only hope that shows in my work. I take ultimate pride and care with every single piece I create. I am a hippie at heart, so I adore bright, bold, “groovy” colors, but I also embrace my earthy side from time to time. My goal is to bring you soft, squishy, luxurious yarn and fiber with saturated color combinations, both oddball and tried-and-true for whatever fiber art you enjoy!

If there is something you do not see in my shop that you would love to have me create, I heartily welcome custom dye jobs with open arms! There is nothing I enjoy more than a good challenge. I will match a photo, a theme, even a random sentence from a book — and I will not be satisfied until you are with the final product!

Most of my spinning fiber is “one-of-a-kind.” It’s really where I let loose and free myself from the structure of formulaic colorways I have created on most of my yarns. If, however, there is a braid you see that you would like more than 4 ounces of, I am happy to create as much as you’d like with the same sort of color combination. Just let me know, and I’ll set out to create the fiber of your dreams.

Yes, I really am this cheerful and easy-going. With me, whatcha see is whatcha get!

New to the site!

My name is Lexi Parisse and I’m a fiber artist and beekeeper. It all began at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where I received a BFA specializing in knitwear. After college I went to work in the NYC fashion industry as an assistant designer, then a design and sales consultant for the largest knitting machine manufacturer in the world, Shima Seiki. While working at Shima, I took a drop spindle class and I was hooked. Now, not only could I create a garment using yarn but I could also create the yarn too! I needed to dive deeper into my new obsession so I decided to leave my job within the fashion industry, move to Long Island and work on a fiber farm. It’s one thing to work with amazing fiber but it’s another thing to work with the animals that provide it to you. Now I am starting a new adventure in my life. I want to not only create and sell beautiful fiber and bee-related products but I want to educate people on bees and the fiber arts as well.

Check out our store for a selection of drop spindle kits, hand spun yarn, bath and beauty products, hand-dyed fiber and more! Enjoy!!
