Announcement   20% OFF OF ALMOST EVERYTHING IN THE SHOP UNTIL I SAY SO! PLEASE USE COUPON CODE 47474. MY PERSONAL THANK YOU TO ALL OF THOSE WHO SUPPORT US ON ETSY!!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND MAY PEACE REIGN!!!!

Welcome to Stash of Ziam. Your one stop shopping for luxurious hand knits and hand sewn silk accessories. I love to spin and knit more than anything else, it is my meditation and brings me much joy. I spin and dye many of my yarns and use a variety in each creation for depth and texture.

I have the pleasure of purchasing my silks from the Punjabi Market in Vancouver, British Columbia several times a year. I mostly handsew my silken goods, embellishing them with treasures I collect during my travels. I love the feel of silk and how it takes the dyes. I often will dye a pot of raw wool, alpaca, unspun silk, silk fabric, mohair and angora. The result is a variety of fibers that have all taken the dye differently but are in the same hue. I then blend them all on my carder to make my softer than soft yarns.

I tend to think of my creations as paintings. I come up with an idea...arrange everything in a basket and look at it several times a day, rearranging colors and textures until I achieve the balance I am looking for. I love this process in my creations, it is very rewarding.

Thank you for visiting my shop. Namaste to all.

The materials of my hat and the quality/intricacy of the craftsmanship were extraordinarily exceptional. I received my item in the mail just days after I requested to have this item made. I HIGHLY recommend buying from the stashofziam"

About

Living The Dream

When I was 50 I met the love of my life. He is a nationally known sculptor and painter. We moved to a very small island in the Pacific Northwest. I became his assistant. I eventually turned a bedroom into a studio for myself and allowed myself time to create. I have always loved fabrics and color and texture. I bought a spinning wheel and that hobby became a passion. I bought a dress form and that too became a member of my family. I started making so many hats, sweaters, shawls, etc. that I started giving them away. I met a young woman who had an Etsy shop and so here I am. It is so satisfying to have a vision, sometimes make the yarn or fabric, create something you think is awesome and then someone else feels the same way and buys it.

Shortly after I opened the shop I had a a wonderful woman inquire about me creating a shawl for her. We spent weeks talking about colors and texture and the reasons why she wanted the shawl. It was very satisfying to put all of the pieces together and having an end result that the client loved and cherished. We are still friends today and support each other in all ways.

Welcome to Stash of Ziam!!! It is my pleasure to bring my handmade, unique designed garments and accessories to you. Each of my creations is made of high quality fiber. Each of my creations is unique, I believe a piece of Fine Art, and comes with an abundance of my heart energy. Working with fiber is my passion and I am blessed to have a lovely studio in my home on one of the splendid San Juan Islands.
I will provide gift wrapping free of charge. I live in a smoke free cat friendly home.
