Meet the Maker
Hello and welcome to Amaranth Fibres! My name is Morgan and I'm the artist behind the dyepots. I've been a knitter off and on since childhood, but it was when I learned to spin in 2017 that my fibre arts fanaticism really took hold.
My principle inspiration for colourways is nature, in all it's bright and brilliant hues, from the radiant magenta of Peonies to the pastel blue speckled eggs of Starlings. My favourite pairings are classic neutrals contrasted with intense neon colours. My most recent inspirations are crystals, which very much represent that duality.
Please check out the blog while you're here for some brief articles on techniques, patterns, colour theory, and studio updates. Don't forget to join the Newsletter to stay in the loop for upcoming fibre festivals and subscriber-only discounts!

Amaranth Fibres was created in 2018 when yarn addict Morgan Gerrard made the leap from personal colour creations to professional indie dyer. Morgan's passion for all fibre arts and related crafts is what drives Amaranth Fibres and our connection to the fibre arts community. Recently relocated to Eastern Ontario, she is eager to explore the natural beauty of the area and can't wait to find new inspirations in the landscape.
