Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    Hand dyed fibers and yarns for spinning, knitting, felting, and weaving, produced one dyepot at a time. Rich jewel tones and vivid colors are created using professional dyes that are set properly in a long hot bath.

Take a look around here, make yourself at home, enjoy the view. Let us know if we can do anything for you. These colorways are created in a smoke-free, dog friendly home and studio. We strive to keep hair away from the fiber, but sometimes it sneaks in as if it has a magnetic attraction to places it shouldn't be.

If you are on the U. S. West Coast- see our hand painted fiber in person Northwest Wools in Portland. Come visit our booth at the Black Sheep Gathering at its new location at the Linn County Expo Center June 29th through July 1st and the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby September 22nd and 23rd, or as Covid-19 allows.

Please note that Free Shipping will be by the most economical way available. If you want expedited shipped, please contact Dicentra for options at additional cost.

About Dicentra

Sales 1,074
On Etsy since 2008

Dicentra Designs was hatched nearly 20 years ago and remains a venture propelled by a single fiber artist with a little help from friends and family. Hollow Tree Studio, a former wood shop behind the house, is home to the alchemy of turning ecru blends of wools and other animal fibers and silk into glorious, shimmering braids of spinnable, feltable fiber. A land use planner by day, Lisa (Dicentra) spends weekends working with fiber, from concocting unique colors into dye stock solutions, to choosing colorways inspired by the visual feast presented by the Oregon countryside, to melding color and fiber in the dyepot, to rinsing and drying dyed fiber, to braiding and packaging finished fiber. Most colorways are done in 4.5 pound batches. Many colors change with the seasons and are not repeated exactly, unless there is a perceived demand for additional runs. Usually new colorways come out in time for shows in February, June, and September. Dicentra-dyed fibers and yarns are available for purchase here on Etsy and at a few fiber shows in Washington and Oregon, as well as in a few shops on the West Coast.
