Mindy's Profile

About

All of my hand made items are one of a kind, from my mind, through my heart, to my hands. I prefer natural and renewable resources such as wool, bamboo, soy and cotton, because they are good for the Earth... and I like the way they look and feel. I do, on occasion make things from non-renewable, but recycled or vintage sources - and I will sometimes carry commercial yarns that I feel are of high quality and can be used by others to make beautiful and useful things.

I try to purchase many of my fibers and supplies from other Etsy merchants - and truly do believe in the principle of supporting home made and hand made.

All my hand spun yarns are spun on my Kromski Mazurka castle wheel, or my Ashford Traditional - and may even have been part of a demonstration given by The CROFT... I also oversee CROFT's Etsy store at Crofters.Etsy.com

I use professional acid dyes on all my hand-dyed rovings and yarns when not using natural dye stuffs. It is the only way to achieve many of the bright, intense colors that we love. All dyes are handled in a way which is not detrimental to the environment, and items are re-used and recycled whenever possible.
