Qing Fibre

October 01, 2020

Layla (Qing Yang) first introduced her explosion of colour in 2016. Having been uninspired by the yarns then available, she took it upon herself to dye her own, and began creating her signature colours and founding the dyehouse Qing Fibre. Originally from Beijing, Layla attended art school, and originally trained as a landscape designer. She now works in South London with a team of like-minded creatives.

Inspired by colour everywhere, Layla and the dye team work together using their signature speckling and eye for colour and detail to create variegated ombrés and intense speckles which are a joy to look at and to knit.

They pursue creative dyeing techniques and unique colours that wow followers. New colour collections are released every season and their latest Spring/Summer 2020 collection was inspired by the bright fades and speckles on fish. 

Qing Fibre release their yarns on 15 different bases, ranging from functional wool to exotic cashmere, alpaca and cotton. These bases are sourced ethically from Peru and England.

Layla and her team take great pride in how much time goes into dying each skein, making each skein like no other.
