About the dyer...
Unplanned Peacock Studio is a hand dyeing studio located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, in the tiny town of Ferrum. Natasha Laity Snyder is the primary artisan who dyes all the yarn. She has a degree in costume design, which translates perfectly to the business of making gorgeous supplies for fiber artists. Natasha and her husband, Mark, also have a spoiled flock of Icelandic sheep, parrots, cats, dogs, chickens, and a peacock who was indeed unplanned. (Little Known Fact: Lisa and Natasha went to college together at the University of Cincinnati, College Conservatory of Music...who knew they'd both end up working in fiber?!)
