sweet hand dyed yarn and fiber

I hand dye all the fiber in my kitchen using acid dyes which are vibrant colour fast dyes. i am trying to have repeatable colourways but often get distracted by all the possible colour combinations and the different ways to apply them. Fat Marmot Knits was born out of a desire to create playful and daring colour combinations. I want to help push knitting into the modern area.

    I started experimenting with dyeing wool in 2012. At first it was just a curiosity, but it quickly turned into an obsession. In 2018 I was finally able to focus on dyeing and sharing my passion with the world.

Care instructions

All fibres are hand dyed and rinsed thoroughly, but there may still be some bleeding. Wash objects made with this yarn in cold/room temp water and lay flat to dry. Due to the nature of hand dying no two skeins will be the same. If you are using more than one skein for a project I recommend switching skeins about every two rows so it has the same look throughout your project.
