Hello and Welcome!!!
I am Tina Newton, aka depraveDyer.
I am the owner of, and creative force behind, Blue Moon Fiber Arts. I am a colorist and a dyer of textiles (mostly yarns, but not exclusively).
I’m also a photographer, yarn maker and knitter. I’ve been living this colorful and textured life for over 20 years, absorbing hues, collecting all kinds of fiber knowledge, selling my goods and creating community with clubs and events
I find myself at a point in my life where I want to share more of who I am, what I know and my artistic process. I also want to be more directly involved with my community of fiber minded, color-loving people in a supportive platform for all of us.

I am also looking for ways to support what I do without raising the price of my yarns. It’s important to me that our yarns are as affordable and accessible as I can make them while still earning a sustainable living -- and that is getting harder to do as wool and dye prices rise.
I am seriously passionate about (okay, obsessed with) all aspects of color, and I love nothing more than sharing my passion and vision. I have that same passion for fiber and yarn and how we make and use them. (Okay, maybe not as intensely passionate as with color but it’s a pretty tight race!)
My goal is to share what I see, how I see it, and then how I translate all of that into color -- and specifically color on fiber. I will share my process from the spark of inspiration to its manifestation on yarn and fibers/fabrics. Included with all of this huespiration will be a lot of information on fibers, sheep breeds, yarn making, the dye process, industry news and issues and all the shenanigans that happen in the dye barn.
Hopefully soon I can also add video content to each of these tiers. (But first I have to get over the whole being-on-camera thing!!)
Your contributions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for supporting the work I do.

Weekly Color Inspiration:

Besides dyeing yarn, one of my passions is exploring my world and taking photographs! Over the years, I've collected thousands of images that inspire me -- I'd like to share them with you and get you thinking about how to see color in your world. Once a week, you'll get a photo from my archive with my musings about what color stories it tells.

Bi-Weekly Dyer’s Notes: Over the years, I've loved writing the 'Dyer's Notes' that accompany our various Club shipments. So this will be my way to bring those color stories to you twice a month! These notes will include things like what is happening in the dye barn, what colors I am brewing up and designs we are considering. I’ll talk about yarns and fiber and knitting and all things Blue Moon (including chicken antics). This is your chance for a peek behind the scenes at Blue Moon, our industry and my process!



Waxing Crescent

Once a Month Colorway Collaboration: The Patreon gang at this level will get together to plot a theme and direction for a monthly colorway! I will create the colorway and submit it to you for preview and naming. You will get to be the very first ones to see it and also be able to purchase our fabulous Color Collaboration, before it goes live on the Blue Moon website. If you've ever wanted to dream up colorways or have fun naming them (half the fun, in my book), here's your chance!

Patreon members at this level also enjoy a 10% discount code on Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarns which you can use twice during the year. (Does not include Club memberships.)


Half Moon

Includes all benefits of the three previous levels (New, Crescent and Waxing Crescent Moons)

Exclusive Colorway Collaboration: Every other month, Patreon members at this level will have an additional colorway challenge! I will share with you a list of themes, which you as a group can vote on. The colorway concept with the most votes will then become an exclusive, Patreon-only colorway that you can order anytime you heart so desires, on any yarn base in the Blue Moon lineup! Plus, you'll have access to a private Pinterest board where you can have a sneak peek into my colorful brain and my inspiration for the seasons.  

Patreon members at this level also enjoy a 10% discount code on Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarns which you can use as many times as you like throughout the year. (Does not include Club memberships.)



Full Moon
$80 or more per month

Includes all benefits of the four previous levels (New, Crescent, Waxing Crescent, and Half Moons)


Plus Color Consultation: 

Here's a chance to pick my color brain! Once during the year, you'll get a color consultation/collaboration via Skype or FaceTime with yours truly, your depraveDyer! We’ll start this process with a color workbook that I'll send you to work through, fill out, and send back to me before  the consultation. During your hour-long consultation (via Skype or FaceTime) we will work on just about anything in relationship to color to help with you crafting and joy! At the end of the consultation I will create a colorway just for you that you get to name and purchase whenever and in whatever base your heart desires. You can also decide if you want it to be your own private color, exclusive to you, or if you want to share it with the world on the Blue Moon website! At some point throughout the year, we will have a follow-up session where we can chat about your evolving sense of color and perhaps plan a few projects (I love helping people choose colorways for projects!)
