About

Milo Knows - Hand-spun and Colorful Living

I'm proud to offer an array of handspun, carded and dyed wool yarn - thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something that inspires you.

I first learned to spin on a drop spindle while doing a Work Study at the John C. Campbell Folk School. I asked a very nice lady who was teaching a workshop about the craft, and she got me started in an evening. I've been addicted to all things wooly ever since. Thank you, nice Folk School Lady-I wish I remembered your name!

I am always trying to get as close to the source, materials-wise, as I possibly can! I most often start with wool directly off the (local) sheep. Otherwise, I seek out unique upcycled materials, working with scraps of fabric and leather, found objects of all kinds, and vintage trims and ribbons.

Why "Milo Knows"? The Phantom Tollbooth, my absolute favorite children's book. Milo starts out apathetic, and soon becomes deeply engaged in the world--in creativity, and learning, and beauty. It is my goal to always keep in mind Milo's lesson. I hope that engagement and excitement comes through in my work, and inspires you to keep that knowledge in your heart too!
