Announcement   I love fiber, color and texture and strive to use only the highest quality natural materials. Handwovens and handspun yarn bring a functionality to art; and it is a joy to be surrounded with such reflections of yourself. My hope is that you can find something here that reflects who you are.
***************************************************************
You can find my handwovens and jewelry at Viva Gallery In Viroqua, Wi. Also coming up, I will be showing my fibers at the Wisconsin Sheep and wool festival http://www.wisconsinsheepandwoolfestival.com/, and my handwovens at The Driftless Area art festival, http://driftlessareaartfestival.com/, both in September.
Visit my website at www.kindredthreads.com to see what I am up to in my studio; nestled in the beautiful driftless region of southwestern Wisconsin.
and ... I started a blog at http://www.kindredthreads.com/studionews/ where I share what my 2nd Monday weavers group is up to.

This is a gift for my sister for Christmas. She saw this yarn at a yarn show and couldn't find the seller again.....she will be overjoyed that I did!

About

weaving a life with fiber and color

My love of color and texture has taken me on a journey from being a glass artist to the fiber arts world. For the last 15 years I have explored spinning, dyeing and weaving. I am now creating fine handwovens, handspun and hand dyed yarns, in my home studio in the beautiful hills of southwestern Wisconsin.
Weaving brings an aspect of functionality to art that I enjoy.
It is hard to describe the wonder of being at the loom and watching your fabric grow with each throw of the shuttle. Fiber is a wonderfully tactile medium and the rhythm of weaving is very meditative. I am very drawn to the interplay of pattern and texture in weaving. Then throw in colors and how they are affected by each other in the weave....It will take me a lifetime to learn all there is to learn about weaving.
Every now and then I go back to my glass roots, and fire up the torch to create glass beads and buttons. Two such different mediums continue to feed my creative soul. If I couldn't be creating something with my hands my life would be incomplete.
Starting my shop on etsy, and creating my blog, both happened a bit by accident. While putt-sing around on the computer and checking these sites out, I found them so easy and visually appealing that before I knew it...whamo alacazam; I had an etsy shop and a blog to help promote my business. Both have been a blessing in renewing my interest in photography (like I need more interests!) , teaching me tons about the internet world and keeping my business constantly fresh and exciting for me.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I will be happy to do custom dye orders if I have the base yarn in stock or let me know if you have a special handspun yarn in mind.

My dyelots, for yarns, are small, so please try to buy enough yardage for your projects, colors can be difficult to match as most of my dyeing is one of a kind.

Also please keep in mind that monitors display colors differently and I have tried to photograph each item to reflect true colors as they show on my monitor.

Wholesale availability
