I just love blue shades, and this one is a soft semi-solid that is somewhere between a SKY and a WASHED DENIM.
Love this gradient, that is ‘related colors’ as opposed to one color/ 3 levels.
silk/linen blend Marla, lace weight yarn, is so easy for summer knitting! its not a slippery yarn, and dyes up with a sweet rustic appeal.

About

like slow food, slow yarn replenishes my soul!

Early mornings with just me and Kleio, our french bulldog, and a cup of tea. My beloved books, my view of the lake, and my radio playing NPR.
My very favorite place to be is... in the studio...dyeing, dreaming, experimenting...my personal heaven!

I opened my shop in June of 2010, while I was working full time in NYC. Now, as of our move to Rochester, New York, in 2018, this has evolved into a full-time life in the dye studio.
My shop concept has always been about yarns to "swoon" over, as that is the core of the deep love and intense yearning I have always had for delectable yarns.

At the beginning I offered about 5 core yarns, and now offer over 32 different yarns. My focus has been on the luxury handspun yarns. I add a yarn when it has something different to offer that I don't already have.

Color...and unusual hard-to-find subtle and different color combinations have been the touchstone of Swoon Fibers. I often knit up a swatch of a newly dyed yarn , as I can't wait to play with it.

I love the excitement that knitters and crafters have about yarn, so when I deal with customers I try to make the experience as smooth as possible. I get it: you fall in love with something, you want it right away...that's me, too!!

All of my hand dyed yarns are a labor of love, they are an expression of the love of my life: fiber & how fiber takes color, and how yarn looks when it is knitted, how fiber looks when it is spun.

I hope you will join me in this journey of discovery and sharing,and the joy of all these things that we love to make with yarn.
