Special one day sale at Fiberdog Fibers

September 28th is coming up and guess what? It is my wedding anniversary!

I like to spread the joy I feel in my life and crafts so on that day only EVERYTHING in my store will be 20% off! You won’t need any code, the discount should be applied automatically at checkout. Of course if there are any issues, please contact me so I can solve your problem as quickly as possible.

Also, I have restocked “Hot Summer”!
It is available both as yarn and fiber and, like all of my products, is hand-dyed and handspun.

Finally, I’d like to introduce my Ravelry group to you, the Fiberdog Fibers Ravelry Fiber Pack. The goal of this group is to create a community where fiber crazy people like you and me can meet and share our joy. Share projects, help each other when we are stuck somewhere, just generally support each other. I will share updates to the shop there, but you don’t have to be a customer to be part of that group (though I would certainly appreciate it 😉 )

I’m looking forward to sharing my fiber passion with you!

Big yarn sale at Fiberdog Fibers!

It is time for a big sale!

I need to make room for new yarns and so I have put a lot of my unique yarns on sale. They are 25% off and you don’t even need to remember a code! For your convenience I have decided to show the discounted prices directly.

All of the yarns on sale are already wound into a cake and ready to use, however, I can re-skein them for you. Just send me a quick message, if you want to use this free service.

You can find all the yarns on sale directly on the first page of the store, but of course you are very welcome to have a look around. Should you have any questions or issues, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will do my very best to help you!

All of my yarns (and fibers) have been made from the raw fleece: I washed, carded, dyed and spun them all myself.

I hope to hear from you soon and as always, enjoy your crafts!

Introducing: Fiberdog Fibers

  • A braid of black and purple fiber and the words Purple Girl.

Hello, fellow crafters! I’m Natalie, the owner of Fiberdog Fibers and I write this to introduce my business to you.

Fiberdog Fibers, based on the east coast of the US, started earlier this year and I sell handdyed fibers as well as handdyed and handspun yarn. I almost exclusively work from raw fleeces that I wash, card, dye and spin myself.

My goal is to spark a little joy in you when you work with my products. Personally I love working with fibers — I spin, knit, crochet and weave — and my fiber crafts have helped me through a very difficult time in my life (major depression and anxiety, with hospitalization and everything). So now that I am feeling better, I aim to provide fibers and yarn that others love to use as much as I loved making them. Our fiber crafts can be a great way to express and even heal ourselves and if I can even play just a tiny role in helping you do that, it absolutely warms my heart.

Another important aspect of Fiberdog Fibers is my mascot and canine supervisor, Fiberdog Hestia. She is a German Shepherd and is there for every part of my “production,” always following me, making sure I do everything right. She also makes sure I take breaks by removing the drive bands from my spinning wheel. If you follow me on Instagram, you will see her now and then.

Some of my colorways are inspired by nature, but most of them are the result of what makes me feel good in the moment. Like I said earlier, I want the fibers and yarn to spark joy and so I go with my gut when dyeing them. I am also very open to letting you inspire me. Have a favorite color/picture and would like to see it in yarn or fiber? Let me know! Maybe your feelings will inspire me and end up in the dyepot. In fact, both the blue and the pink batt on one of the pictures here are inspired by one person.

All that said, I do work on creating more repeatable colorways, so you can also get larger quantities. When in doubt, just ask me about a colorway.

In general, I want you to interact with me! Send me emails, messages, whatever you like to ask questions or just to share a project. I love seeing what you make! Let us inspire and support each other, especially now with the world being a little crazy.

Enjoy your crafts and if you find the time, have a look around at my website!

Come experience a new kind of fiber show, one that comes straight to your house! Introducing the inaugural Virtu-Wool Fiber Festival, a live streaming show featuring 20 vendors from all over the United States. As fiber festivals and shows are canceled due to the pandemic, vendors are looking for new and creative ways to still interact with fiber enthusiasts. This two-day event will run Saturday, May 2nd and Sunday May 3rd from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDT each day. Every hour on the hour, our vendors will be presenting their hand-dyed fibers, yarns, patterns, bags and stitch markers, as well as tips and tricks and demonstrations.

Summer is upon us and the lambing season is finally done. If you are looking for a lightweight yarn to knit with this summer, our hand-dyed wool, linen and silk blend is perfect. I just finished Wave by Kristen Finlay with our wool, linen and silk blend and it knit up beautifully.

We are participating in the Save Em to Save Em Campaign and we have raw Shetland and Leicester Longwool as well as Leicester Longwool yarn. We will have Shetland yarn for the fall festival season.

If you are in the Dover, Pennsylvania area, give us a call and stop by and see the farm, our baby lambs, all the sheep and the shop, located on the farm.

Yarn and Project Bags from BaaBerry Farms

You might not know it where you are, but things are hopping in the middle of Nebraska at BaaBerry Farms. Debi, the owner and shepherdess is also the brains behind the shop, which primarily specializes in project bags and hand-dyed yarn.

Debi designs her project bags from a process of creating the ultimate bag. They are unique and highly functional. For example, her Uptown Bags are a medium-large wedge shaped bag that is fully lined and has interior pockets and wrist straps. They are sized generously for medium to larger projects, too! I have one and it quickly became one of my favorite bags. Debi also has an eye for fun and unusual fabrics!

Most of Debi’s yarns are mill spun from her flock and then hand dyed by her. She has also just launched a new line of worsted weight sock kits! Each kit includes a skein of yarn and a coordinating mini. These will make fun house socks! I have been working with her angora merino blend yarn and it is so soft and warm.

FiberCrafty is a marketplace with many more independent shops all specializing in supplying the fiber community. Do you follow us on Instagram? It’s a great way to see what’s new in our shops!

Shop owners – if you are looking for an easy to use, cost-effective place to host a shop front, take a look at FiberCrafty! We provide a lot of information in our FAQ and it just takes a few minutes to open a shop. Questions? Just hit the Contact Vendor button!
