In my yarns I use the wool from my own sheep and angora bunnies, but also the fiber I buy from some shepherd friends. I love to wash, dye, and spin the fiber and sometimes I find the time to knit or crochet a project. I hope you enjoy looking at my items as much as I enjoy to produce them.
Have a nice time.

About

My life's dream

For a long time it was my life's dream to live on the country with a lot of animals. This dream became reality when we bought an old farm.
I had already two Icelandic horses, but they could not eat all the grass of the huge meadows. So there came sheep and goats. I learned milking and made cheese.
But to have milk the animals have to get lambs every year and the lambs will be slaughtered in autumn. I could not suffer this and stopped it.
Now I have only wool sheep, I don't breed any more and I don't slaughter any more. I use the wonderful wool... and I have two angora bunnies with sooo very soft wool ... and I buy some beautiful woolies from other small farms to have a variety of fiber - I love the smell of raw fleeces, this is my farm life.
I learned how to spin natural art yarns where you still can see all the nice fiber and locks.
I spin a yarn dreams are made of – unique and free, but like the nature in harmony. It is the wool to knit your dreams, full of fantasy, mysticism, imagination and love.

My yarns are one-of-a-kind and singular like my sheep. Each sheep has its own character and its own kind of wool and they are all happily living in their flock, eating grass, sitting under big trees when it is too hot outside, or taking cover from the rain in the open stable, knowing nobody will kill them.

Until today my little farm is my life’s dream and paradise and I wish you could feel the love and happiness I am spinning in each yarn.

    I love nature and animals. I could not imagine a life without animals. And I love to create something with my hand. I enjoy dying fiber and spinning unique yarns.
