Artisan-owned and operated, dedicated to providing the highest-quality products to fiber artists everywhere.

The Story of Blue Savannah

Blue Savannah is dedicated to providing the highest quality products to fiber artists everywhere. In 2007, I learned to knit and fell in love with dyeing wool. Blue Savannah, which had been used for sales of handmade soap and hand-dyed silk scarves, grew out of that passion. I love working with luxury yarn bases as a medium for original semi-solids, kettle dyed, and hand painted colorways. All product is hand dyed by me in small dye lots, and I am the sole owner and operator (with occasional assistance from my teen daughter).

Who I Am

I live on a small acreage in Idaho where I raise organic vegetables, chickens, and children.  I strive for a whole-food diet and drink entirely too much coffee.  I’m an avid reader and knitter, and I enjoy building rest and beauty into everyday life.  I find great delight in my art and in taking inspiration from the life around me–my children, my garden, and the beauty of Idaho.
