We are Angela and Heather, two friends who love the fiber arts and have always been drawn to the beauty of hand-painted yarns. When we began dyeing our own yarn, we joked that we looked like mad scientists decked out in plastic aprons, heat-proof gloves and respirators. But most importantly: once we started mixing dye and creating our own colors, we FELT like mad scientists. And thus, NanoStitch Lab was born.
We find inspiration for our colorways in all aspects of science: astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology and more. We are inspired by and celebrate women in STEM. We have a whole line of tonal colorways named after female scientists, like Annie J. Easley who was an actual rocket scientist and Rosalind Franklin whose work led to the discovery of double helix DNA though two men received the Nobel Prize for the discovery.
We love to experiment with color: creating new colors, new color pairings, and finding that perfect speckled pop of color. We dye colors that inspire us. We dye colors that we want to work with and eventually wear. We dye colors that we love and we hope you do too.
