About

A Lifetime of Fiber Fanatiscism

Barbara has spent most of her life interested in sheep, wool and fiber. Having lamb projects in FFA for high school started things, and as she matured, raising a family of her own recognized the value of natural fibers and handmade items. She cross bred Corriedale x Lincoln x Romney wool sheep for many years, and started a wool processing business to extend her skills in processing to others. Like most fiber enthusiasts she has spent more time creating scarves, hats, socks, gloves, sweaters, vests and other usable items for family and friends, and less time cleaning house and doing the laundry. She has experience weaving, felting, knitting, crocheting and other fiber related activities.
