Triquetra Hand Dyed Yarns, Fibers, and more

Triquetra is run and operated solely by me, Lauren. I use professional non toxic acid dyes and a variety of fibers. Along with my dye work, I also knit, spin, and sew. Occasionally, I offer hand knits, hand spun yarns, Waldorf dolls, and children’s clothing on my store.

All of my hand dyed items are acid and heat set, however, I strongly suggest setting the dye during first washing with one tablespoon of white vinegar, and wash separately for the first 5 washes, at least.

It is worth noting that I do not use design seeds (color cards), like many other dyers do. I create each colorway by creative process of inspiration, thought, altering, and finally producing. I do not fault other dyers for using design seeds, but it is important to me that my customers know each colorway of mine will be unique.

I have a serious passion for natural parenting. I have two beautiful children and a wonderful husband. We live on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii.

Several years ago, I began dyeing fabrics and clothing. With my love for knitting and cloth diapering, this progressed naturally to dyeing yarns. Each skein of my yarn is unique, as only hand dyed can be, but I have found that different dye lots match quite well. My inspiration for colorways come from so many places: my home, beloved television series, old school video games, and more. I describe each inspiration in my store, although I will happily explain my inspiration, should you ask.
If you purchase a colorway from me and knit/crochet/weave it, please forward me a photo that I may use in my gallery! I will graciously offer 10% off your next purchase if you choose to do so.
