Backyard Fiberworks produces inspired colorways pulled right out of the backyard. Their work is grounded in rich and complex color, luxurious and hardworking fibers, and an attention to detail that creates extraordinary yarns. They are located in Maryland and specialize in hand-dyed yarn, offering extraordinary colorways in wonderful bases that provide knitters with an opportunity to select uncommon materials to create exceptional and unique projects. As a complement to hand-dyed yarn, they also offer a well-curated collection of tools for the hand-knitter, kits with original patterns, and fun, fresh gift items.
The American Wool line of Backyard Fiberworks grew out of a profound love for wool and all its makers - from sheep bred for the quality of their fiber to the shepherds who tend the flock, from the spinners to turn floss into fiber to the knitter who puts hands to needle, every link in the chain is celebrated. Each yarn in the American Wool line is sourced from a single farm, where the shepherds know their flock and the respect for the work is evident. The unique features of the fibers are celebrated in each yarn, and each skein promises a unique opportunity to explore the different fibers our amazing craft has to offer.
Alice will be bringing her yarn, kits, books and accessories. Shown here is the On the Spice Market shawl by Melanie Berg worked up in Backyard Fibers.
