Working in Baltimore: How does a Yarn Dyer Work?

On this season of Working, we visit the city of Baltimore, to talk to people about their jobs there. We're hoping to learn about how the city informs their work, and how they are shaping Baltimore itself, by working.

Karida Collins names her yarn colors after Baltimore neighborhoods at her Neighborhood Fiber Company. Karida tells us about how she got started dying yarn, walks us through the full dying process at their studio, and tells us about how she tries to weave connections with Baltimore's wider community.

In a Slate Plus Extra, Lippman tells us about her own knitting projects and the special qualities that make a friend or family member "knit-worthy."
