The yarn for our SNYC Crochet Kit this year was dyed up by Bella Yarn, owner & dyer Marcia Brunning. We will be carrying more Bella Yarn in the future so keep and eye out in the shop and online!
Marcia tells us a little about herself and her indie dying business.
“Hi, I’m Marcia the color designer and dyer of Bella Hand Dyed Yarn. I’ve been in the fiber industry for the past 20 years doing everything from being a shop girl, to yarn rep, to now having a store front as well, Busy Stix. I’m also an avid knitter and make all the samples in the shop.
I’ve always had a passion for color and all the performing arts. I love the chemistry of dyeing and the movement of color. It’s like watching beautifully costumed dancers move through the water as you add and create color on the fiber.
Since I live in California where it is warm most of the time, I primarily dye soft fibers that are comfortable against your skin. I like to use bases that give the customer good stitch definition and a beautiful finished product.”
