Naturally Dyed Items, Gifts + Home Goods
Hailing from the Great Plains, Lesley Darling's passion for fiber and folk life has led her on quite the journey! From herding with rare-breed sheep in Wales, learning a dying language whilst knitting with elders in Sweden, and beyond. In addition to growing and foraging natural dyes, she practices off-road knitting, creates conceptual nature-based garments, and occasionally spins and weaves. She teaches throughout the Midwest and Appalachia and loves to work with beginners and intermediate students with humor while sparking their curiosity for folk culture.
