About Us

    

 

 

 

 

I am a woman with many hats - baseball fan, caregiver, chicken wrangler, daughter, farmer, fiber artist (spinner, knitter, weaver), gamer, gardener, herbalist, musician, nature-lover, potter, shepherdess, teacher, wife. We live in the middle of almost 200 acres in southwest Ohio, where we raise chickens, goats, and sheep, along with a few dogs and cats. Our farm is certified Organic, and we have several areas that we are intentionally planting with native flowers/trees, and allowing to be reclaimed by nature. We rotationally graze the sheep and goats in these intentional wild areas to help scatter seed, provide fertilizer, and assist with pruning. Our sheep and goats have spacious pastures in which to graze and roam - no confined animals here!

My Shetland sheep provide a wide range of natural colored fibers - black, browns, creams, and grays. They are sheared each spring, then I either process the wool myself or take it to America's Natural Fiberworks near Somerville OH for processing. Once clean, I spin the wool into yarn and wash it one more time to set the twist. It's then ready for your projects! Raw and washed fleeces are also available for you to process to your needs.

Shetland wool is excellent for a wide variety of fiber arts, from knitwear, crochet, and weaving, to needle and wet felted items!

I also have a home pottery studio, where I hand make items for the garden (plant pots and garden markers), as well as fiber-related accessories (yarn bowls and yarn spindles). I hand build the items, then fire them in my kiln. They are glazed and fired a second time to over 2200*F to finish the process.

**ALL ITEMS ARE CREATED AND STORED IN A PET-FRIENDLY HOME. YARNS ARE KEPT IN LIDDED TOTES, BUT MAY HAVE COME INTO CONTACT WITH DOGS/CATS DURING THE CREATIVE PROCESSES**
