Loopy Mango x Indie Dyer Collaboration: Merino No. 5 Yarn
This yarn is hand-dyed in small batches as part of a unique collaboration between Loopy Mango and three woman-owned small businesses:
Asylum Fibers is a one-woman indie-dyeing operation based in Queens, NY. Unapologetic colorways are hand-dyed in small batches on both luxurious and versatile bases. Asylum Fibers dyed color Ice Cream Shop.
Hearts on Fiber's mission is to provide beauty in everyday life through our hand-dyed yarn. Created with lots of love, we dye in small batches within the same colorway. Like any original piece of art, each skein is one of a kind. Based out of North Carolina. Hearts on Fiber dyed color Decadence.
Siren Yarn Co - hand-dyed yarn and fiber by two sisters. Inspired by color and texture, beauty in nature, and adventures in sisterhood. Based out of New Mexico. Siren Yarn Co. dyed colors Pink Panther and Sweet Dreams.
