My dyes are metal free and used in limited amounts. I order local when I can, if it's not local I choose it because of the superior quality.
All the Angora fiber in my shop comes from my three wonderful Angora Bunnies. I hand pluck them myself. Someday I hope to provide you with products from my own sheep too! Until then, please enjoy the wools and fibers in my shop with the knowledge that everything here is handmade with love and care especially for you!

If you enjoy the odd fiber anecdote or would like to know more about Sissy's Spinnings please feel free to follow us on Twitter or FaceBook and let us know what you think!

Thank you again for stopping by! Remember each purchase from this shop promotes local farming and the makers of handmade items!
