Ellen and Wanda's Profile
We started this business because we really wanted to spin more than knit; all that yarn had to go somewhere!!! Really though, it has evolved to include a wide range of fiber related products, including spinning fiber, handspun and small batch millspun custom yarns, and unique clothing and accessories. Since both of us still work full time day jobs, what's in the shop depends on what we have time to do, but we are always looking for beautiful fleeces and different opportunities to do things with fiber.
Wanda Platte and Ellen Sakornbut have a strong interest in promoting breed-specific wool and heritage sheep breeds. Whenever possible, we use fleeces from local flocks,and most of our fiber is hand-processed using the gentlest of methods. Our fiber is also hand-dyed using either acidfast non-toxic dyes or natural dyes and non-toxic mordants. In our newest lineup of millspun hand-dyed sock yarn, you may notice the absence of Superwash…
