About

I lie awake at night thinking about color.

Ever since I began making quilts fifteen or sixteen years ago, I have been utterly enchanted by hand dyed fabrics. My earliest dabblings with dyes came about thirteen years ago while I was planning a landscape quilt for my husband. That quilt never did get made, but no matter; I had discovered what I wanted to be when I grew up--a dye artist!

    I began learning my craft in the shadow of the magnificent Ruby Mountains of eastern Nevada. It seemed only fitting that I name my business after them.

I hand dye quite a few base fabrics. Here are some descriptions to help you select the best choice for you.

FELTED WOOL : Only the very best! I felt and dye premium quality virgin wool fabric, which weighs 11 oz per square yard before felting and about 15 oz per square yard after felting. This felt is perfect for no-ravel applique' and for rug hooking. You can cut this as small as a #3 strip.) I also felt and dye a large variety of textured wool fabrics, all appropriate for applique' and rug hooking.

COMBED COTTON: My most frequently used cotton quilting fabric, known to some as Dyer's Cloth. 80 x 80 threads/inch, 3.5 oz. This is very nice stuff--a substantial weight, fine weave, smooth surface, pleasing hand. It dyes up with brilliant colors and amazing, dramatic visual texture, needles easily, and takes a nice, sharp crease.

KONA COTTON (Kaufman Fabrics): Quilters love this fabric! 60 x 60 threads/inch, 4.4 oz. Heavier than P&B, with a very even, open weave, which makes it very easy to hand needle, gives it a sumptuous drape and a silky surface texture. Dyes up with glorious color and a softer mottling.

COTTON VELVETEEN: Soft as velvet and strong as denim. Wonderful for stuffed animals, home decorating, clothing, quilt backing and more.

HEMP, BAMBOO, RAYON and ORGANICS available upon request.

Additional policies and FAQs
CARE & WASHING:

Cotton: I take special precautions to ensure that your fabric is colorfast, by washing multiple times in very hot water and Synthrapol and treating the fabrics with a professional dye fixative. Please be advised that some household laundry detergents have a high pH, which can re-activate the dye molecules and cause them to bleed in the wash. I recommend washing our fabrics in your water with your detergent before using in your projects, just to be sure. When washing your finished item for the first time, you may wish to use a color absorbing sheet.

Wool: Our hand dyed wool felt has been washed and dried and is ready to use in your projects. Prewashing is not necessary, however, if you choose to prewash your wool, please wash gently by hand in cool water, squeeze the excess water out, and lay flat to dry. You may want to “block” your wool while damp. You may also use a warm iron to flatten and square it up. Your finished project can be gently laundered by hand in cool water and air dried.

SPECIAL ORDERS: Our listings here at Etsy are not all-inclusive. If you want something special, by all means, DON'T BE SHY! We want to hear from you. You can mix and match, pick and choose, create your own color combinations, request different quantities, different base fabrics, different surface textures....whatever you like, we can make it happen. Minimum size order on custom listings is an eighth yard per color.
