pin it

My hand spun fiber starts with the rovings from the mill. These rovings are often hand painted or dyed prior to spinning. I use a spinning wheel to produce my hand spun yarns. The mohair yarn we produce is considered an exotic fiber. It has a great loft to it. I keep my knitting of it to very simple designs. Triangular shawls using larger needles and simple stitch additions allow the loft to come through the knitting. I also create hats that "Make Me Smile" using combinations of hand and mill spun yarns. All of my knitted products are created from our own fiber with only slight embellishments from other sources.
