About GarnetFiberStudio

On Etsy since 2016

A earth scientist with a passion for all things fiber!

Welcome to my etsy shop!
I have a BS and MS in geology and have been a professional geologist for over ten years. I use that love of rocks, minerals and the earth to inspire my fiber work.

I started knitting right out of grad school and found my first floor loom pretty quickly after that. In the last few years I have taken up yarn and fiber dying and spinning: I love the control it gives me over the finished piece!

In 2015 I had to quit my full time job in the corporate world when I got "sick". My automatic nervous system started acting up and we discovered that I have a condition called mast cell activation disorder. It's basically like a full body allergic reaction to nothing in particular. As a result I have to rest frequently and avoid stressful situations. More time for playing with fiber and yarn! Not a bad silver lining. 😀

My husband and I have lived in beautiful Denver Colorado since 2012 and we love it here! We live right in town with our cat, Lefty, a tuxedo short hair and way to handsome for his own good. We are surrounded by amazing scenery, great food and beer, and wonderful neighbors in our adopted home!

    Owner, Creator

    I am a professional freelance geologist. I use my passion in all things rock, earth & mineral as inspiration in my fiber arts. The rest of my free time is spent annoying my cat & my husband, watching Sherlock, Doctor Who, Always Sunny, Archer, etc!

  • Lefty

    Assistant

    I love to "hunt" anything with animal fibers. I assist the shop being being cute and making sure that the studio stays tidy. If there is anything out where it shouldn't be... I'll find it!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

Although I do sell and use superwash wools that can handle a gentle cycle and cool dry I recommend hand washing handmade pieces to ensure it has a long life

Please tell me if this is being sent directly to someone as a gift. I will be happy to omit the invoice and add a gift card. Just tell me what you'd like the card to say.

Some of my colorways are repeatable and I have access to many different yarn bases. Please convo me if there is a color and yarn/fiber you'd like. Of course, please allow for an increased processing time.

I am happy to take custom weaving orders! Convo me and we can talk about timing and scope!
