Super Colorful Hand Painted and Hand Dyed Yarn
Hand painted yarn takes a little more time and effort to make than commercially dyed or hand dyed yarn, but the resulting non-homogenous, handmade brushstrokes create swirling colors-bordering-on-textures that are richer, more vibrant, and more distinct than the rest. If you’re looking to make a truly one-of-a-kind piece then hand painted knitting yarns are the way to go.
In addition to hand dyed yarn, Friends and Fiberworks also carries several brands that specialize in hand painted yarns including:
• Hand Painted Knitting Yarns (HPKY)
• Claudia Hand Painted Yarns
…and several small, one-time batches by local fiber artists.
