Northwoods Dyeworks is truly a family business, and we try to incorporate those values into everything that we do. Also a bricks & mortar LYS located in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, we deeply understand the importance of knowing your community and acting responsibly.
Dyeing both fabrics and yarns professionally since 2000, we have become known for our vibrant colors and bold combinations. Years of specializing in children's tie dye has spilled over into everything we do, and although subtle tones do surface from time to time, our more whimsical colorways continue to define our style year after year.
In 2008, we added a new line of products to our spinning fibers, "Batts by Bea." And yes, there is a Bea! These unique and often luxurious batts come from a 6 year old girl's uncontrollable desire to play with color. Of course, she lets the rest of us pitch in, but customers are often amused by the sight of a second grader laying bags of fiber in lines along the shop floor, deciding which ones to blend. Every colorway features at least one uniquely blended or dyed color.
Our family is proud to be a member of the Fiber Baristas and we're so excited about what this partnership can bring to the fiber world. Located only a block from Lake Superior and sandwiched between several national parks & forests, the hardest part will be picking just one thing to inspire our colorway. We look forward to serving up something special come September!
