About the Dyer:
Hi! I’m Deirdre Darr, the fangirl behind Fangirl Hand Dyed Yarns. I’ve been knitting for over 20 years. I’m married to my best friend, Ben. We have two crazy boys who keep me very busy when I’m not dyeing yarn or knitting. I’m located in the Les Cheneaux Islands area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula along the beautiful north shore of Lake Huron. I started in May 2018 and my original plan was to dye yarn for myself and maybe a few friends. However, after playing around and developing my first color, Early Morning, I was hooked! When you dye yarn to sell, you have to name the colors. My main inspiration comes from the band a-ha. As any fan of the band will tell you, a-ha is far more than just “Take on Me” (check out the “This is a-ha” channel on Spotify – shameless plug for my fave band). The reason I am unable to be at the Trunk Show is because I will be in Belfast, Northern Ireland to visit friends and family, but also to FINALLY see a-ha live in concert.
