About pawsitiveplantation

On Etsy since 2012

Pawsitive Plantation has been dedicated to producing the finest fibers for 20 yrs.

It all started with one little English Angora rabbit acquired at the NY Sheep & Wool festival. Eventually after a friend got tired of spinning the fiber for me she convinced me to get my own wheel. With some help from a good friend I dove into the fiber world feet first. Never telling me that one fiber was harder to spin than another, she had me try spinning angora to silk and beyond. After the first couple lessons, spinning came naturally to me so competing at various fairs came next. My husband saw that a neighbor had some wool for sale and the next thing we knew we were bringing home 2 sheep as well. That was the start of raising many different breeds of sheep, goats and rabbits with our girls in 4-H. Eventually we moved from the Catskills of NY to the NW GA mountains bringing our whole farm with us. 45 animals in all. Getting use to the hot, humid climate of GA meant finding breeds that could adapt too. We have settled on the wonderful charismatic Pygora goat. Their small size make it easy for me to handle on my own now that my girl's are grown and left home. Their fiber is a dream come true. All hand spun yarn is done on either an antique Canadian production wheel, late 1800's, or my workhorse a Dutch Louet wheel. Woven items are done on an antique 4 harness table loom or a "Cricket" rigid heddle loom.
