About Red Door Fibers – Hand-Dyed Luxury at Affordable Prices

As a busy educator, principal, and mom, I was always looking for easy ways to relax in the evenings. I learned to knit as a child but was re-introduced as an adult. Knitting became my go-to way to wind down each evening, especially once my children left home.

My enjoyment for knitting grew, and I began working with different fibers. It didn’t take very long for me to realize that what I really liked to work with were the luxury yarns. I fell in love with silk blends especially, so I decided to try my hand at dyeing—and naively hoped to save money!

Once I retired in 2019, my experience with dyeing grew. I developed a love for the challenge of creating new and cohesive colorways. The process of creating the different colorways changes each time I’m dyeing. Sometimes it’s a picture that spoke to me, an idea about a collection, or just wondering what would happen if…. A year later, in 2020, Red Door Fibers opened its “doors!”

My love for super soft, luxury fiber has become my brand. The mission at Red Door Fibers is to create hand-dyed luxury at affordable prices. Everyone should be able to create with luxury yarn without breaking the bank.

From my door to yours, thank you for supporting my small business.
