About

A weaver and natural dyer working from my home studio in Sullivan County New York, I specialize in sustainable fibers and naturally dyed local wool. Established in 2009, fisher cat fiber co was created as a way to focus on using salvaged materials to create one-of-a-kind rag rugs, all woven in the traditional style on a 1940s Union Loom. Over the past ten years, I expanded my weaving practice into creating simple, understated wearable pieces from local wool or vestige fibers. Every piece is handcrafted from start to finish.

A lifelong student of nature, the outdoors, and the ancient practice of natural dyeing, I have developed a strong knowledge of regional dyes sourced from the Western Catskills. Establishing a sustainable fiber-shed where wool is sourced from local farms to create yearly small batch yarns.
