About

Bringing Small Farm Fiber to the discriminating fiber artist.

After years studying handspinning under people such as Rita Buchanan, Deb Robson, Abby Franquemont, Beth Smith and Judith McKenzie, Ellen now brings her knowledge and joy to the public by providing roving, hand dyed locks, and weaving kits to the fiberarts public. Author of the blog Sheepwreck (sheepwreck.wordpress.com) over the years she has presented different breeds of sheep and their wool. Some breeds are quite rare like the Santa Cruz Island others such as the Corriedale ubiquitous. Ellen is also an active member of the Ravelry spinning community and goes by the moniker ellenspn.

In addition to her fiber pursuits, Ellen shows her herding breed dogs in various sports venues including Rally Obedience and Nosework.

Spinners, weavers, wet felters, needle felters, art quilters among others can find inspiration in this shop with the glowing locks and gently processed rovings.
