2018: Dragonfly Fibers

Dragonfly Fibers Yarn

We dye high quality knitting yarns and spinning fibers in deep, rich and sometimes crazy bright colors for your crafting pleasure. You can find our yarns and fibers here in the shop and in brick and mortar yarn shops across the country and the world, as well as at various fiber festivals throughout the year. The Colors of Happiness are created and shared with the world in the Washington, DC area by Kate Chiocchio and Nancye Bonomo and the amazing Team Dragonfly. We have been coming to Homespun Yarn Party since the beginning and love this energetic local show.

2018: Dancing Leaf Farm

Dancing Leaf Farm

I'm known for my rich, saturated colors, with color blending that flows from one hue to another. I use many bases of yarns, a variety of wools, silk, alpaca. I also carry felting supplies including roving, needles, and kits for nuno felting.

I started my business over 30 years ago, with one sheep and a studio. My love of color led me to begin dyeing the wool, then spinning, knitting, weaving and felting followed. I am part of an artisan tour three times a year and also show at a few sheep and wool festivals. I hold monthly classes on felting and knitting out of my studio on my small farm.

At Crabapple Yarns, I dye luxury fibers like merino and bamboo, yak and tweeds; for not only knitting but crocheting, and weaving too!  I love to dye vibrant variegated combos, gradients, speckled and semi solids on a variety of weights from fingering to worsted.

2018: Brediculous Yarns (New vendor!)

Brediculous Yarns

I hand dye yarn in multiple colors using my go-to style, crock potting. I also hand dye fiber for spinners using merino and Polwarth from a local mill. Dyeing yarn is not only a passion of mine, it is therapy. Blending colors and watch your vision comes to life is the best feeling ever!
