The wool, mohair and alpaca I use is grown on locally raised sheep, goats and alpaca, right here in the Pacific Northwest. I buy the softest fibers, wash, dye, prepare and spin on my Louet wheel. This art yarn is soft, colorful and primitive.
All my yarns come in big 105 yard skeins, perfect for making a scarf, mitts or hat. My patterns using size 17 needles or Q hook to create a quick easy to wear warm garment. Request a free pattern when ordering.
We have a smoke free home. Our kitties are only interested in the pre washed fiber, so your yarn is mostly cat free.
I have been spinning and selling these handspun yarns since the early 1990's. When we lived in Minnesota I was a vendor at the Shepherds Harvest, Yarn Over and with the Lamb and Wool Producers at the Minnesota State Fair. We moved to the Spokane WA area in '05. Here I sell my yarns at the Kootenai County Farmers Market in Coeurd'alene Idaho, May thru October. Various art festivals in the area: Log Cabin Spinners Spin In, The Farm Chicks, Big Sky Fiber Festival, Sandpoint festival, Custer Holiday and Spring Art shows, Yuletide, check my website: http://www.GardenPartyFibers.com , to see where i am each weekend.

Thanks for looking here. JQ

About

Mmmmm YARN !

Juaquetta Holcomb has been teaching knitting and fiber related arts her entire life with a Home Economics degree from Iowa State providing a good foundation. A typical day finds her at home in Spokane valley, washing locally grown wool, and then immersing it into roasters of colorful dyes, then hand spinning it on her Louet spinning wheel. Her minimal processing helps preserve the original beauty of the fiber and keeps the colors distinct. Her yarns can be found at local art festivals, Kootenai County Farmers Market in Coeur d'Alene Idaho, on her website www.GardenPartyFibers.com.

“The wool and mohair I use is from locally grown sheep and angora goats. For many of these yarns I have met the sheep and or shepherdess. Often the name of the sheep is what I use for the name of the yarn. I wash, dye, card and spin these fibers into one of kind rustic yarns. Seeing the true colors of the fleece come out as I wash the wool, playing with colors in the dyeing process, feeling the texture as I spin these fibers into primitive yarns; every step of the yarn creation is inspiring to me. Inspiration comes to me from life. Every color has a story. My workshop looks out over the north Idaho mountains and as I spin I watch the sky show over the mountains. From sunrise to sunset, cloudy and clear skies the view is always amazing. Especially exciting, is to see what you have created with my yarns. ENJOY!”
