Announcement   Thanks for looking at my shop. I make all-natural, top-quality body products and hand dyed silks and yarns using natural dyes and low-impact mordants and methods. All my products are as local and environmentally-friendly as possible. I use oils in my body products that are unrefined whenever possible.

If you're local, please look for my body butters at the Buffalo Mountain Coop in Hardwick, VT.

I do not use any palm oil, as its production is causing devastation to the environment, wildlife, and people in countries like Indonesia (see http://ran.org/category/issue/palm-oil for more information). I use some animal fats in my soaps that I buy and render from local farms that raise healthy animals. I don't use synthetic, petroleum-based fragrances or additives in my products, nor do I use any water. (Except soap, which can't be made without it!) I test all my products out on my family and myself. If they aren't good enough for us, they aren't good enough for you!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions about my products and/or my eco-friendly practices, please ask. I'm constantly working on lowering my carbon footprint and making body and earth-friendly products. I welcome your feedback and suggestions.

The plants I use to dye my yarns and silks are mostly local and organic. Most of my natural dyes are organic matter that would otherwise be discarded - carrot tops, extra rhubarb roots, wild goldenrod, etc. I love taking these and making them into beautiful dyes for yarn and silk. Create beautiful knitted or crocheted works with these eco-friendly, unique yarns, and decorate yourself and your children's playroom with beautiful silks, dyed with care in my home.

Amazing body butter. Thick and rich and long lasting. The scent is wonderful. I'm in the pool 3-4 days a week and this is the only lotion the soothes my itchy skin.

Thanks for looking at my shop. I make soaps, shampoo bars, and lotions from all-natural, top quality ingredients. I use organic, fair-trade, raw, and unrefined ingredients whenever possible. I use lard in my soaps, rendered from local, pastured pigs. This is an environmentally-friendly way to avoid the ecological and human-rights problems associated with palm oil. I also use vegetable oils to ensure my soaps are as moisturizing and gentle as possible.

My silks and yarns are hand dyed using primarily local plants or parts of vegetables that would otherwise be waste. This is a low-impact way to create natural, beautiful, unique colors for play silks, scarves, and knitting or crocheting yarns. I use alum, cream of tartar, and copper scrubbies for low-impact mordants.
