About

Wonderful wooly handmade creations!

Hello, my name is Danielle and I'm a mother of five in a small rural farm town in Indiana. I've always enjoyed working with my hands and learned crochet and knitting at the feet of my grandmother Mimi. I never thought I'd become a spinner. Really I'd never been exposed to much of the craft except for demonstrations on a living farm museum field trip with my kids. My son's eccentric piano teacher had horses and llamas and was getting ready to throw away a couple garbage bags full of llama wool. I questioned why she didn't sell it and she promptly handed the bags to me laughing! So the beginning of my fiber craze... First step was to learn spinning using a handmade drop spindle. Several hours of frustration and moderate success produced a small amount of yarn for a hat project. Then came a vacation and a spinning class (time away from the herd 😊). My next birthday present was a Kromski Minstrel wheel. I found out quickly that I enjoyed the fiber blending and colors that go with spinning more than the knitting projects I was doing. So here I am trying to give purpose to my passion.
