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 stripe-y socks, I started FDW in January 2011 in response to my desire to see more self-striping yarns available in the indie-dyed market. I’ve been fortunate to have a small team of helpers work with me over the years to do pre-dye prep and post-dye work that allows me more time to focus on what I most love – designing and dyeing the vivid, imaginative striping patterns our customers enjoy.
Self-striping remains my primary focus, but I’ve continued to broaden our product line through the years with colorblock gradients, variegated & speckled colorways, ever-versatile semi-solids, and whimsical sock blanks.
All of FDW’s self-striping and gradient-dyed products feature hand-wound patterns that are then hand-dyed in small batches and finally reskeined by hand as well. It is a time-intensive process, but one to which I am committed in order to create the quality products that I want to offer to our customers.
Additionally, I regularly seek opportunities to collaborate with other talented makers and high quality product providers so I can offer our customers an even broader range of what I consider to be the best resources available for their making endeavors.
Whatever your fiber-crafting desires are, I hope you will find something you love among the items we have to share with you.
