I'm Sultan, I'm a Nonbinary Chicago based yarn dyer, originally from Saudi Arabia and I am the dyer behind Alwan Sultan and I dye self striping sock yarn and I go where the spirit moves me when it comes to my creative process. I dye in very small batches hence my motto Slow Fiber!
Alwan means colors in Arabic, Alwan Sultan came from my love of dyeing and self striping yarn. I have been dyeing yarn since 2016 and never stopped since!
I love experimenting, mixing and playing with colors, rainbows are my favorite. I take inspiration from everywhere, especially nature and as much as I love bright colors I really love dyeing moody and earthy tones, don't get me wrong I will still be dyeing neons too
