So it feels like a lovely coincidence, a happy accident, a full-circle, good karma kind of thing that I would happen onto spinning yarn. I was looking for a way to ensure that I could stay home with my daughter and it fell right into my lap. Before that, spinning was always on my list of things I wanted to learn someday. Of course someday almost never comes, so I’m thankful for the unforeseen push that led me to pursue fiber as both an art and a business.
The best part is that I love it. I do it all myself – the yarn that you see in my shop usually starts as either commercial wool top or fresh off the sheep. I dye it here at home in very small batches (usually 4-6 at a time), spin it in my living room, photograph it in my backyard, and mail it out to you in yummy little yarn cakes that I wind up on the ball winder I keep in my fiber room. My 4-year-old personally hugs each package before we send it on its way. There’s a lot of love in what I do.
Next, let me show you which skein of yarn I chose from her beautiful shop - this was not easy.
