Get to know Greenwood Fiberworks

Greenwood Fiberworks is an indie dye company that specializes in hand dyeing luxury fibers and yarns. They are located in Utah.

Carolyn, the owner and founder of Greenwood Fiberworks, says:
I often laugh that dyeing is my “hobby on steroids.” I started dyeing over 20 years ago when I spun up pounds of white fiber and wanted to make it colorful. Encouraged by my fiber friends, I began offering my dyed fibers for sale. This small hobby has grown through the years and now includes a full line of dyed fibers and yarns that can be found online, at festivals, and in shops throughout the country. I’m most happy when I am in the studio, up to my elbows in dye, and working with the wonderful women who call themselves “minions”. 

Thanks so much to Greenwood Fiberworks for supplying our amazing fiber. We can’t wait for you to try it!
