Welcome! I'm Michele, founder of Isis Fibre Arts, a small (but awesome!) hand dyed yarn company based in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada. I started dyeing yarn in 2013 after seeing a video on dyeing yarn with drink powder, and was hooked instantly! I love seeing plain white yarn turn into gorgeous colours. I began dyeing yarn with professional dyes for myself, friends and family, but soon realized that I needed to do something with all the yarn that was piling up. While I love knitting, I'm kind of slow at it and couldn't keep up with my new passion - dyeing. I decided to start Isis Fibre Arts to share the bounty... I hope you love it!
It's mostly a one-woman shop here at Isis Fibre Arts, but I do get some help from my amazing Mom when she has the time, and I'm well supervised by Charlie, my golden retriever, and Isis, my coonhound-husky mix. Yes I named my business after my dog... what can I say... it's a cool name!
When I'm not dyeing yarn, you can find me gardening, sitting on my deck knitting or reading, or swimming with the dogs at one of the two lakes bordering Penticton.
