A true superstar in the world of hand-dyed yarns: Babs Ausherman aka Miss Babs from Mountain City, Tennessee. Her colors are everything from intense to glowingly subtle, the combinations daring and harmonic at the same time. Babs first tried dyeing yarn about 15 years ago after she had started spinning fiber and ended up with a bunch of white yarn that needed to have some color on it. She started dyeing yarn in her kitchen sink using Kool-Aid, food dyes, cake/icing dyes. She took a class in natural dyeing before moving on to commercial acid dyes and after a few more workshops, she dove into fiber and made her business grow.
