Thanks for checking out my shop! My background is in ecology, but have found a great way to combine my creativity with conservation through fiber arts. I feature milkweed floss in most of my products, which benefits critical habitat for Monarch butterflies. I try my best to make all my products as environmentally-friendly as possible, while still providing an excellent spinning experience. I do my own dyeing for all my products and use the Midwest landscape as my inspiration. I hope you find something that speaks to you in my shop and have as much fun as I do spinning it up!

How do you source your fibers?

I work directly with local farmers to ensure the ethical treatment of animals and to build lasting relationships with the farmers. This also allows me to pick the best fleeces for my needs and offer unique spinning experiences with custom milled rovings.

The cotton is sourced from Peru through an eco-friendly fiber business. I chose to use cotton from Peru because of the availability of non-GMO plants that are also GOTS Certified, meaning it meets strict environmental and ethical standards.

Will I be double charged for shipping if I order multiple items?

If you order more than one item, Etsy may charge you extra shipping, possibly per item. We will do our best to package your items in a single box and refund you the difference in shipping.

Allergen Information - Latex

The common milkweed plant (Asclepias syriaca) produces white latex when broken. Though we do not expect to find any latex in the milkweed floss itself, we recommend that those with a latex allergy avoid our products.
