Announcement   Welcome to Poppy Creek Farm!
I find infinite beauty in nature, and I love to capture the simple perfection of natural, raw fleece in my rovings, batts and yarns. Fleeces are grown, hand sheared and carefully processed right here on the farm, all crafted to retain the character, structure and integrity of the natural look!
"Barn To Yarn" really sums up my ethos and the products you will find here. I enjoy hand preparing the fleeces and rovings, because it allows me to build upon the crimp and natural curl of the fleeces that can be lost in the commercial milling process.
The same goes for my hand spun yarns, especially the lockspun! Spinning that way allows for the lock structure of the beautiful mohair to remain intact, and for the luster and softness to really shine through.
I think you will love the natural beauty of these fibers as much as I do.

About

When I look at a raw fleece, whether it is wool, alpaca or mohair, I see the miracle of Mother Nature; this creature lives outside, grows this wool over the course of a year, and somehow it is still soft and perfect and something that we fiber artists love to craft into beautiful wearable art.
Helping my fiber animals to grow amazing fleeces is something that I am entirely immersed in day to day, providing quality feed and hay, ensuring that everyone has shelter and somewhere comfortable to be away from the weather - whether that's -10f or 105f! - and assisting them in raising the next generation of fiber producers.
I live and breathe this beautiful chaos, and out of it comes the raw fleece that is crafted into fiber art that I can't believe I am lucky enough to have had a hand in creating.

    I do all the shearing, skirting and processing of the fiber by hand, am a Redding Method certified dye teacher, and I also love to card, spin and crochet. Unless otherwise mentioned, all items in my store are hand made by me.
