The story of Frabjous Fibers begins with owner Stephanie Shiman, some recycled silk yarn, a knitted bag design, and a few boxes of imports stashed under the dining room table. The business grew organically from dining room to attic to house take-over to studio to bigger studio. A one-woman operation grew organically, over the course of a decade, from one to three to a dozen-strong team.
