Hello! Welcome to Flora Adora Fibers Naturally Dyed Yarns
Hi, I’m Sharon, a natural dyer living in rural Ohio. I decided it was time to get back to my roots and passions-being outdoors, native plants, gardening, kniiting and yarns. Mix those all together and you get natural dyeing.
Flora Adora Fibers nurtures "An exploration in color & fiber": Foraging and researching to find new dyes or dye sources, growing new dye plants in the garden, trying new dyeing methods, not knowing exactly how it will turn out but that it’s worth trying. Delving back into history to connect with and learn from dyers whose only option for color was natural dyes. All to share glorious colors from Nature that will make your heart sing.
Searching for unusual, less common yarns and wools is another piece of the adventure. There are around 1400 sheep breeds, plus goats, rabbits and other fiber producing animals. My wish is to make it easier for knitters and crocheters to get their hands on different wool breeds and help support diversity as well as learning about the differences between wools. At the same time, you’ll support variety of small businesses-shepherds, mills, seed companies, etc.
Flora Adora Fibers offers non superwash yarns, naturally dyed with techniques that minimize water use, reuse mordants and dyes, and use food grade chemicals to bind dyes to yarn. Dye materials are responsibly foraged, grown or purchased from sustainable sources.
