About

Wild Light Woolens is named for that which gives life to all things and the untamed light living within each of us. When I reflect on favorite memories, I find most of them dappled with colors from light present at the time--the rosy glow of sky reflected on sea after a storm, vivid pastels alive within a sunset viewed from my grandparent's front yard, and stargazing with my dad, for instance. My heart skips a beat when I look out over or stop to think about regions near and far, illuminated by the continually changing light in winter, spring, summer and fall, making wild light a favorite feeling, too.

Here you will find handmade woolens with an old timey feel. Each of these little ditties can be thought of as an ode to our ancestors and times gone by. I do hope the colors, textures and love in each piece put a smile on your face when you bring them out to play!…

Patterns and designs are my own. I use high quality, American-raised and processed* natural fibers in my knits to ensure my work does not negatively impact our incredibly lovely, one-of-a-kind Mother Earth.

I am fascinated with, inspired by, and ever in awe of: the ancestral realm | anti anti-aging | blue skies, grey skies | bright eyes | chilly sea air | the cosmos in our bones | country roads | critters | design | earth friendliness | forests | freckles | fresh air | gardening | genealogy | geological wonders | ghost towns + ghost stories | grins spanning ear to ear | the ground beneath our feet | history | iceland, ireland, denmark, portugal, and great britain--lands of my ancestors | introversion | kindness | mountains | native american mythology | natural beauty |nevada | norse mythology | oceans | the old west | oregon | the pacific northwest | plant life | pogonip | the quiet stillness of winter | rainy days | rocks | science | sightseeing | simple living | the smell of damp earth | snow days | sustainability | tall trees, all trees | thunderstorms | vast night skies | the wild seaside ♡

Have a woolly nice day!

*Unless otherwise noted, as I do have special projects in mind which will include wool from other countries, sourced from wonderful, ecologically-minded small farms and businesses.
