About Fidley Dyeworks
Based in beautiful BC Canada, Fidley Dyeworks was created out of a love for family, yarn and colour. I work closely with several North American mills to bring you an interesting selection of high quality yarns. I dye all the yarn by hand, in small batches and can accommodate large or special orders with enough notice.
I began dyeing yarn as a stress relieving hobby that complemented my ever-expanding knitting adventures, After our second child was diagnosed with Autism, we quickly realized that daycare wasn't going to be an option for him anymore. So I left the working world to stay home and facilitate his home and school-based therapy programs. It has been an enjoyable and challenging journey into stay at home parenting, but I still needed a way to contribute to the family's finances. After making my first few yarn sales, I realized my favourite creative outlet could become a fun business venture,
After lots of hard work and plenty of support and inspiration from my dear family and friends, Fidley Dyeworks was born. My name is Kate and I hope you enjoy my experiments and adventures with colour as much as I do!
