Thank you for visiting my site! Songbird Yarn and Fibres is a fledgling indie dyer.
My aim is to explore and exhibit my love of birds by using their natural colouring to dye yarn and fibre. Each colourway includes some fun facts about the specific bird I am featuring. I have always been an avid birdwatcher and lover of nature, so I am excited to pass along a little of my bird love to you!
Of all the species in North America, about 35% of them are at risk or endanged due to climate change, habitat loss or other pressures. I will donate $2.00 per skein to Bird Studies Canada to help conservation efforts.
I use acid dyes for squishy, vibrant skeins dyed in small batches in a smoke-free home. I use immersion and handpainting techniques and mix my colours as I go, so each batch will be similar, but not an exact match.
Currently I have 3 bases - Sock, Lace and Worsted. I will offer different bases as my business grows.
If you have a request for a specific favourite, please don't hesitate to contact me and I will try to accommodate any request.
