Hi Friends! Welcome to Rising Tide Fiber Co.!

My name is Melissa Murphy. RTFC is a one woman run indie yarn company that hand dyes yarn in small dye lots to create highly saturated semisolid, tonal, speckled and varigated colorways.

When I'm not dyeing yarn or teaching (my full time gig), you can usually find me knitting, reading, watching knitting related podcast, or hanging out with my 3 Boston Terriers.

I find inspiration in the everyday ordinary, which for me is in the Twin Beach area of Maryland (North Beach/Chesapeake Beach). My town still has that small town charm expected along the coastline of the Chesapeake Bay.

My website showcases a selection of my repeatable colorways that can be dyed on any of my yarn bases. I love to play with color and create gorgeous colorways for all kind of fiber related crafts. I hope my colorways inspire you to create something you love or gift to someone to cherish.

Thank you so much for stopping by my shop! You can stay up to date by signing up for my email newsletter. You can also follow me on Instragram or Facebook. Or join us on Ravelry!
