Madeline Keller-King – Fiber Arts & Natural Dyes
Madeline Keller-King, known across the internet by her social media handle Wooly Witch of the West, is a fiber artist and natural dyer. While her fiber journey began with knitting it has since expanded to include her true loves – handspinning and natural dyeing. She works from her home in the woods of Northwestern Montana where she is blessed to be in community with many small scale fiber producers & have an abundance of dyestuff growing in her own backyard. Every time she steps outside is a hunt for color! Madeline is a regular contributor to Spin Off Magazine, regularly vends her naturally dyed yarns and fibers at fiber events, and teaches knitting, handspinning, and natural dye classes.
