About

Mountain Life Spinning Soul

When I decided to quit Milan I worked as a Fashion Designer and a Milliner

I lived for my job and brand and didn't have time to do and think anything else

I decided to move to an isolated place to start again a new life in the Nature and at the first Yarn was handspun by me only for my personal use as in summer I'm surrounded by sheeps and shepherds were happy to give their fleece to me instead of burning it (!!!)

Now I've settled up my studio and I' ve started selling yarn in local markets,International Fairs an on Etsy with great results!

A small house in the Alps, simply made of wood and stones

I live here with Elio and our dog, we are the only human presence in all the mountain

We live out of the grid : we are taking water in a spring outside the house, in the vegetable garden and we are picking up wood for the stove every day of the year

We charge pc and telephone with 2 solar panels placed on the roof of the house..... we produce our own electricity and stock it in 2 batteries so we can also use some light in the evening, the sewing machine and some other little devices

We have to walk about one hour in the woods to get to the nearest grocer's shop and post office to send my parcels! in winter sometimes this is more like a hiking than a walk.
When we have snow sometimes we are forced to stay in our place for days because it's simply impossible to go anywhere.

In summer I spin outside my house and it 's really funny because there are wild animals eagles, foxes, hares and chamoises but also sheeps and cows everywhere around me!

Little things is what really affecst me and make me feel one thing with Nature and its rules.....you are not buying just a skein but a little piece of my heart
