Lulubeans is the work of fiber artist Aprill Newman and was born out of the philosophy that creating is one of life's greatest joys. I dye and spin the yarn you see here, and occasionally offer some handpainted, commercially produced yarn as well. Pouring color onto "blank" fiber and using my spinning wheel to create yard after yard of yarn is a genuine passion for me. I love the idea that something I have put so much of my energy into can travel into your hands and take on a whole new life!

Technical knitty gritty: Unless otherwise noted, all fiber and yarn is dyed with professional grade acid dyes that are light and wash fast. Yarn weight, fiber content, yard quantity and other specifics are listed with each individual yarn. All yarns are carefully handwashed before they appear in the yarn shop. My home is smoke free, but I do share it with a small short haired pup and two cats. I am generally successful in keeping them out away from my yarn and fiber, but I can't guarantee that everything is allergy free. I do my absolute best to accurately represent my work in photographs, but please note that colors may vary a tiny bit from monitor to monitor.

Most importantly, I hope that the yarn I spin will inspire and enhance your fiber creations.
