Meet our local dyers Posted on 27 Aug 13:02 , 0 comments
While I was perusing the latest issue of Vogue Knitting I saw a mention of our friends at The Fiber Seed. I thought you'd like to know more about them too. Here's their story:
The Fiber Seed is an American hand dyeing yarn company with one task...provide a colorful, consistent, reliable yarn for you. We believe that happens best with American made products.
American manufacturing is not in the numbers it once was, but it is producing a reliable product that is seemingly untapped. The yarns we have made consist of wool from American farms and is processed by some of the oldest wool mills in the nation. Even the dyes we use were created and continued to be manufactured here.
We are proud to have an American made product because we are proud of the products that Americans make. They give us the solid foundation to dye our yarn that allows us to deliver a consistent and reliable product.
Dyed in Florida
It all comes together in Florida. We dye our yarns in the heart of Tampa Bay, well the peninsula in the bay actually. And, no, we don't use the saltwater from the bay.
Lindsay was born and raised here. She even began the business at her grandparents home in South Tampa. It's a family effort now. Her husband, Jordan, is her paper pushing office manager and their son thinks he is a site boss...born 2014.
The sun is brighter down here and it's out all the time (the Sunshine State they call it). We see more natural colors, colors we want to recreate and share with you. So, the next item you're making, put some color in it from Florida. You'll thank us for it!
