    About Us and Small Beginnings

    The art of knitting came to me as a very little girl, and my passion for fiber arts has been ever-growing! I learned to spin yarn by watching my mom, and developed a love and appreciation for alpaca through my dad who sheared them. In high-school I started Lazy Dog Fiber Arts, and in 2011 my husband, Matt, and I took over the family alpaca shearing business.
    Alpaca is such a beautiful natural fiber, so I like to keep it as natural as possible.
    My fibers are raised on local, Michigan farms, shorn in humane settings, and carefully processed by hand. Recently I also have begun working with a local mill to help speed up the tedious hand processing so I can concentrate on spinning and knitting by hand.
    Whenever possible, I use as many earth-friendly processes as I can, including solar heated water, organic cleaners, air drying, and I also use recycled paper when available for packaging to help further reduce our impact on the Earth.
    Once cleaned and processed, and my husband and I use spinning wheels from our expansive collection to create most of the yarns. Once the yarn is ready, I knit it up by hand into unique, one-of-a-kind creations just for you!
    So please, enjoy, indulge, and share in our passion for alpaca and a greener Earth!

      As a professional alpaca shearer, a knitter, spinner, and general fiber-artist, I work with "fluffy-stuff" in some form or another almost every day of my life. Fiber arts are a strong passion of mine, and one that I want to share with you!
