Hi, I'm Janet!
Welcome to Natural Dyes on Wool with Timber Creek Farm! I'm a creative shepherd, wool dyer, crafter, and author. When we first began raising a fiber flock of sheep and goats, my dream was to create yarn from our flocks shearing each year. After being introduced to natural dyes about ten years back, I added color goals to my dreams.
But not just any colors. Our flock is raised as naturally as possible, hence the name of our yarn – Free Range Yarn! The colors had to match our determination to live naturally. Between taking workshops, and taking risks, I have come up with my own methods for creating and using natural dyes on wool. I love to take the scientific requirements and add the artistic elements.
I hope you will decide this is just what you have been searching for too. My courses will take you through the initial basic steps of natural dyeing, strengthen your talents, and encourage you to go ahead with your own journey.
Let’s get started!
