Lady Dye Yarns is available in our brick & mortar and coming soon to the web shop.
Lady Dye Yarns is an eco-friendly indie-dye yarn business that creates vibrant and colorful hand-painted yarns, accessories, and knitwear designs inspired by street art and city living. Started in June 2010, Lady Dye Yarns (LDY) aims to be a leader in urban knitting and crafting, and a fresh presence in an industry that has historically lacked diversity.
Demands for LDY have steadily increased since the company was born. After starting the business six years ago by selling hand-dyed yarns to friends and family, LDY began to sell at small craft fairs and now has developed an online presence and attending national shows.
As a woman of color and small business owner, Lady Dye Yarns is an LLC solely owned by founder Diane Ivey. Over the past eight years, LDY has operated with Diane Ivey serving as Founder and Creative Director, with support from several commission-based sales representatives based regionally around the country. LDY is guided by a volunteer Advisory Board.
