With a background in both science, studio art, and art history, it’s no wonder Ridgely found her way to dyeing yarn, and we are so glad that she did! She’s always been interested in painting, and you can see some of her works here. Unfortunately, paintings are hard to price, but dyeing yarn is a great alternative. She is fortunate to make this her full time job now out in Portland, Maine. I took a second to ask Ridgely some questions about her yarns and colors, so join me in learning a little about the newest addition to the fibre space hand dyer family!
