Friends Don’t Let Friends Craft With Insipid Yarn

So many stripeys, so little time! White Birch Fiber Arts specializes in long gradients and gradient stripeys, full of riotous color, wit, and daredevil playfulness.

My dyeing specialty is technically complicated and labor-intensive techniques that you won’t find in many other places. I am one of not very many dyers doing long-repeat stripeys, so right away that sets me apart. I also go where other dyers do not tread, doing gradient cakes on bases and at lengths that are very hard to find anywhere else. My gradient cakes come in lengths from 200 to 1600 yards, and are on a superb selection of bases – from the same Vermont-grown CVM/Romeldale that my roving features, to baby camel and silk. Very few other dyers have that range.

Recently, I have also started carrying a unique and very popular line of handcrafted buttons, made of natural materials like agate, antler, fossils, burned wood and semiprecious gems. There are even buttons made from fossilized dinosaur bone! No more perfect accent could be found for your perfect stitchwork.
