Lost Names- Liz Claiborne. 100g Hand Dyed BFL

Lost Names celebrates the people that have disappeared from history... but whose names we should all know about. 

Liz Claiborne-

In 1986 her company became the first company with a female founder to make the Fortune 500 list, and she became the first female chair and CEO of a Fortune 500 company. 

An American fashion designer her route to success was to design clothing that could be worn as separates and interchangeably, marketed to working women.  Her items were colourful, and the start of what we would now call leisure wear. 

On retirement she established an environmental foundation which donated millions of  dollars to nature conservancy projects all over the world.

Colours in this pack-  Forest Green, Red Wine, Jade, Pink, Lime. 

5 x 20g (0.7oz) of hand dyed combed top. 


You can spin them as mini-skins, or use hand carders to create transition shades for a gradient skein. You could also use them on drum carders and blending boards to add a little special touch to blends. 

Each colour way is hand dyed in a solid colour way, but the nature of hand dyeing creates a fibre that won't produce a solid coloured yarn. This tonal variation will really help to create unique beautiful projects. 


These colourways are intended to be repeatable, but the nature of my hand dyeing techniques means that colourways will never be identical from dye batch to dye batch. All the packs that are available at any one time will come from the same batch and will match each other. Packs listed at a later date may well contain colours that are slightly different. Please buy enough in one go to complete your chosen project.


These fibres have been dyed to exhaust using acid dyes, and then rinsed using hot water and detergent. However, differences in water can sometimes cause odd things to happen to hand dyed fibres. I would recommend washing the dark colours separately from the pale colours in the unlikely case that some bleeding does occur.
