Video summary: Peeling homegrown willow. I sell the peeled rods to basketmakers or burn it to make charcoal, and use the bark for homebrewed natural dye.

Handspun and plant-dyed yarns, nalbinding and looping, botanical print scarves and home decor

Here in rural northern Wisconsin I grow Japanese indigo, woad and willow and forage other plants for dyeing handspun and mill-spun yarns. I source raw wool from area growers and spin with a twist that's particularly well-suited for use in nalbinding, Continental knitting and crochet. It all fits into the life we've crafted here in Wisconsin's Northwoods.

When I'm not spinning, dyeing or collecting dye materials, I teach looping and nalbinding. Looping is an ancient tradition that keeps evolving as contemporary fiber artists put their own spin on it. Never heard of it? Your ancient ancestors probably knew it by another name. Intrigued? You can learn more about looping at http://donnakallnerfiberart.com.

Thanks for stopping by!
