What is Redbird?
Redbird is an indie-dye studio based in Columbus, Ohio that specializes in self-striping sock yarn. All products in the shop are warped, dyed, and wound by hand.
Whose hands are those?
Mine! My name is Liana. I've been knitting for more than 10 years, and crocheting for at least 20. Dyeing my own yarn started as a curiosity and bloomed into a small business! I love small, portable projects like socks, and now that I've discovered the joy of self-striping yarns, I haven't looked back.
I'll confess I'm lazy when it comes to knitting projects. The fewer fiddly bits I have to manage (i.e. yarn ends that need woven in...), the more likely I am to actually finish a project. Self-striping yarns were a revelation for me. All the fun of striped socks, without the millions of ends to weave in?? I'll take one of everything, please and thanks.
I've loved kettle-dyed, tonal yarns for years, and I love creating those same tonal variations in each stripe in every skein. My days are spent in the corporate world, but that doesn't stop me from dreaming up new colorways. You'll find me in my home studio most evenings, where I sketch and test and dye and wind and forget I have to be at work again the next morning.
