Brine Dyeworks

Charity, the owner and operator of Brine Dyeworks, is a mom of two, living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. She is an avid knitter and "yarnie" (like foodie but with yarn) with an affinity for rich, tonal colorways, low contrast variegation, and speckles, and she has a serious thing for mini skeins (lucky us!).

When it came time to choose a name for this venture, Charity's mind immediately went to pickles. Before having a family, she cooked professionally for over a decade, and had made thousands of quarts of pickles in her life (cucumbers, carrots, beets, beans, asparagus, etc.). In general, a lot of the processes she uses for dyeing yarn are reminiscent of pickle-making and brining (use of acid, heat, and salt). 

Charity recognizes the immense privilege that she experiences, and is grateful to be able to help and support others via organizations that she feels exemplify her values and issues she finds important.
Below are the organizations that proceeds from Brine Dyeworks currently enable Charity to support.
