A few years ago, I started hearing about a dyer from Montana….and I loved everything I saw of their yarn. Today, I now own a few skeins of The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers yarn and am a huge admirer of this independent dyer. Candice created this company and now runs it with the help of her husband, Xander, who is now the head dyer. Candice and her family do a lot for the knitting community – andto help raise money to empower indigenous women and children.
Let me tell you more about this great company….
