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.
If you ever have any questions, comments, or suggestions, you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (this is my preferred and most reliable method, as I do not always receive all notifications on social media and will no longer be accepting direct messages on Instagram from people I am not following due to the amount of spam and strange messages I receive) You can also send me a convo over on Etsy and I will get back to you.
