Naturally dyed fibers and simple crocheted creations from the farm

Yarn Over Floyd is a small batch, independent yarn dyer from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Here in the Appalachian Mountains I try and collect, use and save our local flora, scraps from the garden and weeds to help feed our love of fiber. There is never enough yarn and each one of our skeins is dyed specifically with the intent of you being able to take a little piece of our paradise home with you.
