The Wild Woman Story

I've always marched to the beat of my own drum. I've always lived life on my own terms, and I've never followed the crowd or what was trendy. When I decided to dye yarn professionally, I knew that I had to come up with something unique. I looked at what everyone else was doing, techniques, etc., and then did it my own way.

My mom has always called me Wild Woman because I have been adventurous in my choice of where I live and work my entire life. I decided to incorporate that not only in the way I dye yarn and am inspired by colorways, but also literally the title of my indie yarn company. I have a beautiful daughter that I homeschool, and she has been a source of inspiration, particularly naming colorways.

Wild Woman Fibers yarn can only be found at Yarns, Threads & More in Durango, Colorado. I am the only truly local indie dyer selling yarn at the shop. Please stop in to say hi and check out the yarn selection!
