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.

Photos and monitors are not perfect. I make every attempt to post pictures that are as true to life as possible. If you need, I can exchange or refund (minus shipping costs) unused, unsoiled items within 30 days of payment.

Soiled includes smelling of smoke. I have asthma and am sensitive to smoke.
Payment
I accept any payments that PayPal works with, including credit cards.

Items must be paid for within 5 days. After that I will re-list the item.

Illinois residents will be charged 7% sales tax. Sorry, but the state wants it's cut.

After I receive payment I will ship within 3 days. However, life happens. Occasionally I will go out of town for a couple days. I will make every attempt to contact you if something is delayed.

One item is shipped First Class with delivery confirmation, two or more items are shipped via Priority. If the total is over $50 or the item is fragile I recommend purchasing insurance. Please contact me concerning adding insurance to your shipment.

Shipments that weigh 4 pounds or more are shipped UPS. Please contact me if you are unable to accept UPS shipments for some reason.

International Customers: I'm happy to ship overseas. Most economical for you and I is via the US postal service.

I'm happy to ship your purchases as a gift. I can ship anonymously as well.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you need larger amounts of roving please contact me. I may be able to accommodate your needs.

I am not wholesaling at this time.

With locks they are generally one off colorways and I am unable to repeat them.
