...Even though all my yarn is washed, rinsed, and stored in plastic tubs, you do need to realize I have hairy members in my family - but none of us smoke.
...I am a proud member of EtsyFAST (fine arts street team), and am a monthly contributor to the PhatFiber box.
...I have stopped blogging but can be friended on FaceBook as Maple Smith, or liked at NorthStarAlpacas.

...Please let me know if you have sensitivities to scents because I store my fibers in plastic bins with lavender to chase off the dreaded moths. I would be glad to rewash yarn that you purchase.
