I’m Lisa Cannon, the owner and dyer behind Fibernymph Dye Works. My studio is located in the beautiful Laurel Mountains 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 work, which allows me more time to focus on what I most love – designing and dyeing the colorful striping patterns our customers enjoy.
All of FDW’s self-striping and gradient-dyed yarns feature hand-wound patterns that are then hand-dyed in small batches and finally reskeined by hand as well. It is a time and labor-intensive process, but one to which I am committed in order to create the types of products that I want to offer to our customers.
While self-striping remains my primary focus, our product line is accentuated with a rotation of variegated & speckled colorways, ever-versatile semi-solids, and whimsical sock blanks. As a spinner, I also love to dye spinning fiber. I carry a variety of breed-specific fibers, and I do my best to seek out rustic and heritage/conservation breeds that are outside the realm of “the usual” so we can all broaden our spinning horizons!
I regularly seek opportunities to collaborate with other talented makers and high quality product providers so I can offer my 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.
