About ExLibrisFibers

Sales 113

Bookish hand dyed wool

Ex Libris Fibers hand dyed yarns are bookish, moody, atmospheric, sometimes quirky, and commonly vintage-reminiscent. By day dyer Rita is a public librarian and finds color inspiration in not only the stories and histories that fill the shelves, but more often the aesthetics of rare books, archives, and aging libraries.

Each fiber base is judged on its ability to work up as luxuriously and affordably as possible so that you'll enjoy every moment of your needlework and own a finished object with lasting comfort and strength. Wool is dyed in a home basement studio on a small scale, using sustainable practices including water conservation and air drying, professional acid dyes, and finally each skein is hand twisted and hand labeled.

Orders are transported to the post office by bicycle (safely tucked into waterproofed side bags) and packaged in recycled and recyclable materials.

    Owner, Dyer

    I'd been crocheting for years before a friend introduced me to indie dyed yarns & knitting. There was no turning back. With a background in art & a love of color, I started dyeing at home to bring you all the colors and fibers I dream about!

Frequently asked questions
Shipping for Dyed to Order and Ready to Ship

Orders containing both Dyed to Order and Ready to Ship skeins will ship in 2-3 weeks to accommodate the time necessary to create your skeins.

Any Ready to Ship skeins needed earlier than this timeframe must be placed as a separate order to ensure 1-3 day shipping on those skeins.

Care instructions

For best results, hand wash separately in cool water, and lay flat to dry.

I live in Pittsburgh. Can I pick up my yarn?

Yes, and I'm happy to refund your shipping cost! Include "Local pick up please" in your order notes and we'll take it from there.

Custom and personalized orders

Custom order availability depends on seasonal workload - unfortunately custom orders are unavailable at this time.
