I’m excited to have another independent yarn dyer to share with you today. I get newsletters from Cape May Fiber and, earlier this year, just had to place my first order. Vanessa is the dyer and knitwear designer behind Cape May and she lives in New Jersey. Her colors are inspired by the sea and are beautifully dyed in subtle, rich, and variegated colors. And there’s even self-striping colorways!

I was surprised at how fast shipping was when ordering from Cape May!
