Works and looks just as described. Fast shipping. It would be nice if it shipped with something to cover the needles when not in use, maybe a piece of foam or something but I just stick it into a dryer ball for now.

About

Spry Whimsy Fiber Arts Journey

In September of 2010 Ingrid went away for her annual pilgrimage to the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool festival. This particular year she focused her classes for the weekend on felting. She took a hat class, a Nuno scarf class and a bag with a resist class. She came home and taught Peter the techniques from those classes. She then left town on business and when she came back there were about 6 new hats sitting in the living room.

Peter had finally found his fiber calling and hasn't stop creating since

Up to this point, we had been raising huacaya alpacas on our farm, Forest Academy Alpacas, in Evansville, Wisconsin and Ingrid had been doing all things fiber - skirting, washing, spinning, weaving, knitting.... Now that Peter had something to do other than feed the animals and scoop poop things really started to take off.

In 2011 Peter attended more than 20 Arts and Craft shows across WI. By the time October rolled around we had enough inventory of hats and scarves as well as some hand spun yarn to fill a small storefront.

So in November of 2011 we made the leap and rented a space in Stoughton WI. It is a great location in a vibrant down town. It even has a great studio space for daily creations and is big enough to hold classes.

New creations are coming out of the studio daily and the shop has a lot more than just hats and scarves. A large collection of bags, vessels and wall art are also available.
