Diane Ivey is the owner and Creative Director of Lady Dye Yarns, an indie-dye yarn company since 2010. The centerpiece of LDY’s unique product line is hand-dyed yarns. Inspired by graffiti and other street art, LDY’s yarns are unlike any others in the marketplace. What makes the yarns unique is in the one-of-a-kind results that come from hand-dyeing small batched of high-quality yarn. LDY believes that when you dye yarn in small batches, you have better control of the quality. She uses a very special dye that as of now, no one is using in the industry. In addition, Diane, has a strong understanding of color theory, allowing her to blend and create colorways that are beautiful and special.
She spent sixteen years in the nonprofit sector. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Mass Communication with a concentration in Print Journalism from Georgia College & State University. She also holds a Masters in Public Administration with a concentration in Non-Profit Management from Suffolk University.
