• What We Do

    Since 2011, FDW has specialized in creating dynamic self-striping colorways. Dyed on a variety of bases in weights from fingering to bulky, we help you enjoy the stripe-y goodness from head to toe!

     

    Our product line also includes color block gradients, variegated & speckled colorways, random dyed and hand-painted sock blanks, as well as a wide range of wonderfully versatile semi-solids.

     

    For the spinner, we offer gradient and random dyed braids of fiber on a number of non-superwash breeds including BFL, Polwarth, Falkland, and silk blends.

  • About

    I'm Lisa Cannon, the owner and dyer behind Fibernymph Dye Works. My studio is located in the beautiful Laurel Mountain region of southwestern Pennsylvania. As an avid knitter with a passion for knitting socks, I started FDW in response to my own desire to see more self-striping yarns available in the indie-dyed market.

    FDW began in January, 2011 as a family venture, both of my then teenagers playing an active role in the operation of the business. As the years progressed and they moved on to follow their own paths, I've been fortunate to have a number of others come in and out of the FDW family, helping to create the beautiful products we sell.

    It was a natural progression from self-striping to dyeing color block gradients - striping colorways with a single repeat throughout the skein, perfect for shawls, wraps, cowls, and so many other garments.

    Our product line has continued to grow in scope over the years, including variegated & speckled colorways, ever-versatile semi-solids, and most recently, sock blanks dyed using a number of amazingly fun techniques.

    Whatever your fiber-crafting desires are, we hope you will find something you love among the items we create.
