To say we are excited about carrying D n D fibers is an understatement! Diana and Dave are local to Medina, NY. We've met them on multiple occasions and know first hand the care they use when choosing fibers and the artistry they achieve in their dye pots!


Hand wash all fibers in cool water, with no agitation, and lay flat to dry to avoid felting.

Additional Notes

Dyeing Techniques

These are the dyeing techniques employed for each style. Each description below is included on a card with each corresponding braid of fiber to help the spinner achieve an intended effect.

Dyed w/ Mirrored Striping:
-These have been snaked back and forth, in a flat pan, then dyed in stripes.
-Can be spun to keep stripes or split randomly to mix the colors.
-These are great for doing fractal spins. Example: A single braid is split, usually in half
and that is spun from end to end; other half can be split in 2, 3, 4 etc. and each spun end to end.
Then these would be plied with the first half. This creates stripes but in a more heathered way

Kettle Dyed:
-These are spiraled in a dye pot and then dyed with two or three colors.
-This creates blends of the colors used and colors tend to have a more gradual transition.
-These are more random than mirrored striping.

Dyed w/ Random Dots:
-These are snaked in flat pans but are dotted/speckled with dye colors.
-These are the most random of all our dyeing techniques.

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
