my fiber philosophy = bold colors + TEXTURE
My journey into the world of yarn began at a young age, when my grandmother and I would spend our afternoons together as a child. She taught me to crochet at the age of 8, when my sense of awe and wonder for the world of creating with my hands had begun. I wasn't a hardcore crocheter or anything at that time, and dropped the craft for many years during middle and high school.
Fast forward 12 years, and I decided to try crochet again to give a blanket as a gift. I was in college, and this time my love for crafting really picked back up. Not long after graduating with my degree in Graphic Design in 2012, I decided to teach myself to knit as well. I began spinning yarn with a drop spindle late 2013, and that progressed into learning to dye my own fibers, and then spinning got serious when I purchased my first spinning wheel in April of 2014. (I wrote a blog post all about that here)
I am now a full-time fiber artist. I spend my days spinning OOAK yarns, weaving wall hangings, and occasionally knitting. I spin and dye most of the yarn that I use (or support indie dyers and small businesses) from natural fibers; domestic wool, small farm fleeces, and upcycling fibers to create truly unique skeins of yarn.
I especially love to spin textured handspun (my 'Antler' thick & thin is my specialty), handspun singles, and mini skein yarn packs for weavers.
Nearly all items I sell are limited edition or one of a kind. I typically do not repeat colorways and handspun is always unique, so stock up while you can! I dye all of my yarn in very small batches to ensure quality of every skein.
