Raventwist is new on the fibre circuit but I have been selling my hand-dyed products for the last five years as Rocky Mountain Dyeworks. Raventwist was created while I was recuperating from a broken pelvis earlier this year. Working on a short story that included a pennannular pin of a celtic braid with a raven (the pin still features in the story), one idea led to another, and Raventwist was born.

I mostly dye yarn & spinning fibre, some rug hooking wool and a few hundred silk scarves a year. The silk scarves are sold through a sister company, Rocky Mountain Wildrags, and are bought almost exclusively by cowboys!
