Laura has been a spinner (mostly), a weaver (a little bit) and a knitter (a tiny bit) for over 20 years.

However, Laura's main focus is her handspun yarns. Laura spins from her herd (of 4) pygora goats, Wookie, Winnie, Willow and Yoda. She also spins other fibers prefering to spin specialty or exotic fibers such as alpaca, soy silk, mohair, angora, tencel and camel etc., although she also spins some wonderful wool as well.

Some of her most recent trips to aquire these fibers include (but are not limited to): her neighbors of "Alpacas in Wildcat Hollow" Eskridge, Kansas, local and national fiber festivals such as the "Wool Festival at Taos" as well as travels to other countries, most recently England, Wales and Scotland. She even got some fabulous camel down yarn from her local PBS television on air auction!

Laura's handspun yarn ranges from classic single and two ply yarns to her newest wild and exotic novelty blends which include found objects such as beads, feathers, fringe etc.

Each skein is spun on one of Laura's multiple spinning wheels. Her Majacraft Susie Pro (most of the bulky, crazy stuff) Her Lendrum Saxony, (most of the even 2 ply yarns).

Laura also creates yarn on one of her beautiful Spindles collected from Golding Fiber Spindles as well as Schacht Spindle Co.
