About

Living With Fiber and Loving It!

I learned to knit nearly thirty years ago while living in Europe, where there is a deep tradition of and respect for handmade items. When I returned to the US after more than ten years of living abroad, knitting and fiber were certainly not appreciated as works of art. Compliments from people who received knitted gifts were typically framed along the lines of "Wow, that looks store-bought!" We certainly strive to achieve a polished and professional look for our products, but also want to acknowledge the expertise and craftsmanship that goes in to the entire process and each piece. The last decade has seen quite the proliferation of fiber enthusiasts and fantastic fiber outlets across the country, making beautiful fiber and yarn readily available in every nook and cranny.

I dreamed of spending my days working with fiber rather than just simply sitting at a desk. Thanks to my three cats, Poni, Mowgli and Beemer, I developed interests in other areas fiber can be developed, namely, the Paca Pet Pouf luxury pet bed. Every time I got my sorting table out, they all clamored to snuggle and bask in the fiber. Clearly, they were on to something. We designed and tested several versions of the bed before deciding on the three standard models we now offer.

The cat and dog toys soon followed - how could we just offer beds since there were other great things to do with the fiber?! Besides, many items are made with limited amounts of yarn and fabric, so the beds not only allow us to use the alpaca fiber that is often discarded because it's deemed undesirable (too short to spin, too coarse to where next to your skin), but the leftover fabric and yarn really means that NOTHING goes to waste!

I returned to my knitting roots with our knitted accessory product line, offering ready to ship items and custom knit accessories in a variety of colors, modern knits designed for the entire family.

An independent storefront, sugarboysfibercreations.com, is the most recent addition to our family. In addition to our handmade items, we are able to offer some additional pet products and craft supplies. We also have a loyalty club with generous returns, so visit us there!
