Naturally Dyed Yarn

At Fern Fiber we believe in small farms and sustainable fiber. We strive to dye wool that is ecologically raised and processed without the use of harsh chemicals. We support our local community and work closely with fiber and flower farmers, mushroom gatherers, and local companies of the Appalachian Mountains. If we are not gathering materials ourselves from our local forests and gardens, we are getting to know the people who are.

In the majestic mountains we call home, ferns grow abundantly in the forests and along sparkling woodland streams. In spring, as the ferns unfurl, tiny new green growth appears. These new leaves represent rebirth, abundance, and connection to the earth. As we gather local herbs, flowers, mushrooms, and barks we think of this earth connection and the way it is portrayed and painted in our yarns. We began our journey as gardeners and herbalists, aligned to the changing seasons and cycles of nature. We delight in using this knowledge of the natural world in our fiber and art.

    We are mountain mamas who met through our love of plants many years ago. Our lives have continued similar paths through our families, our love of nature, and the desire to roll around in soft fleeces, knitting and spinning!

Additional policies and FAQs
We collect most of our dye materials from local gardens, forests, and farmers. Depending on the season, weather, soil quality, etc. the results of our naturally dyed yarns can have some variation in colors. The colors may also change slightly over time and wear. This is part of the appeal of natural dyeing. The yarn you receive may not look exactly like the one pictured in the listing, but we do our best to make it as close as possible.

Please store your yarns out of the sunlight to minimize fading of color.

We are happy to discuss wholesale and custom orders. Just drop us a note.
