Drucilla Pettibone's Profile
I have always felt that spinning yarn was a most magical activity, the stuff of faerie tales. I've been handspinning for about fifteen years and stitching with mum since I was a little thing. I love all sorts of old-time arts, crafts, artefacts and folklore. My husband and I live on a small farm in rural North Carolina with Shetland and Jacob sheep and angora rabbits who provide inspiration and sometimes fiber. Our critters are family and are never eaten or sold.
Here you'll find hand-processed and naturally-dyed spinning fibers, hand-turned spindles, adornments assembled from scavenged fabric, stone, bone and other precious materials, and accessories that recall our history and connection with creatures of the land, sea and sky.
