Loop products are made with every fiber imaginable. Steph makes use of everything from yak down to bamboo, milk protein, recycled sari silk, and shredded money. She uses colors and fibers in unexpected combinations, and deliberately cards uneven, bumpy batts to create texture and randomness in her handspun.

Loop spinning batts have appeared on the cover of Spin Off Magazine (Winter 2007), and have been featured on the pages of Spin Off, Knitty, Craft Magazine, DIY City Mag, Lime & Violets “The Daily Chum,” and numerous spinning websites, blogs, and forums. They are also featured in “Sit and Spin,” a spinning DVD by Insubordiknit.
