Corvid Fiber Co. is a one woman operation. I have been working with yarn in one form or another since I was about 4 years old. After running an indie dyer focused yarn shop for a few years, life threw me a curve ball and I had to walk away from the wonderful fiber community I had built within my store. I knew I didn't want to leave the fiber industry, and had been hand dyeing some yarn on the side for the better part of a year so I decided to shift gears into dyeing full time.
I started just dyeing colors I loved to wear. Because that’s the beauty of fiber arts right? You can tweak existing patterns to be custom to what’s flattering for your body, so why not do that for my skin tone as well? As a woman of color, I can’t wear a lot of the trendy color palettes, they’re not flattering to the melanin in my skin. And there are definitely other wonderful dyers out there with a similar point of view, but since when does the world have enough yarn?
So I took my two art degrees, 850 hours of hair school, and 30+ years of working with fiber from sheep to sweaters and got to work. A few hits, a couple misses, and a lot of dyeing later, here we are. A magick inspired, melanin friendly line of yarn.
Corvid Fiber Co. provides a collection of colors that are flattering to a range of skin tones. Whether you’ve been blessed with melanin or not, there are colors here that will make you feel magickal once you wear them.
