Owner and natural dyer, Patricia Fortinsky, sources wool from small farms from New York and all over New England. Carded and spun in New England fiber mills, the magic of Tidal Yarns begins. "When the finished yarn is in my hands, the dyeing begins. Color is a passion of mine. I practice traditional methods to extract color from the natural dyestuffs which I grow in my garden and forage. With the blending of high quality plant based extracts, the Tidal Yarns palette blossoms into a heathery, earthy color spectrum," says Patricia.
