An experience of texture and color

This shop was originally borne out of an overzealous interest in plants, mainly focused on orchids, but other families as well. My objective is to help you see the wonder of the sheer variety of plant forms there are, and help you gain the confidence to try something new.

Meanwhile, many of you know me also as an accomplished wool pig. Come join me in pursuit of distinct, exquisite beauty of fleeces and the adventure of learning their unique merits.

YOU CAN GROW AN ORCHID: There are 30,000 orchid species distributed across the globe in every variety of climate, in all types of conditions, and on every continent except Antarctica. They're found in desert, tropical areas, temperate areas, even into the alpine regions. With so much to choose from, we can be sure to find one that will fit your house and habits just right.

YOU CAN SPIN FROM FLEECE: If you've never worked with fleece before, don't have a drum carder, that's okay! Many fleeces can be prepped for spinning with nothing more complicated than a cat brush! The technique is call flick combing. Look for well organized fibers 3 or more inches in length. Please ask if you need help.

I use USPS Priority or First Class mail. On occasion with large orders of wool I will ship by Parcel Post to save you money.

All live plants are shipped by USPS Priority mail. For best results, I recommend you have plants shipped to an address where they can be received immediately and brought inside. Please be sure to unpack your plants soon after arrival. Plants are not shipped on Thursday or Friday.

Plants shipped in bloom or bud may require additional shipping charges due to size and handling. Because I cannot control the handling and environment the package experiences while in transit, I cannot guarantee safe arrival of flowers or buds. I will do my best to make sure they are well padded.

Plant shipping will be shut down in winter.
