Dyeing, Carding, Spinning and Repeat.. My Story..

Hi! I am Ali, the Proprietress of The Golden Threads. I started this Journey about 8 years ago by rescuing an Angora Goat.. I didn't know what to do with her "hair" as I brushed her everyday.. of course this was at the time I didn't have a clue about Fiber or Fiber Arts or Handspinning.. So, I googled and watched youtube videos.. I eventually bought 2 dog brushes and made a drop spindle from some cardboard, a pencil and a cup hook into the eraser. Then I graduated to an angora rabbit.. after a few years I upgraded my spindle to a homemade wooden spindle.. then to an electric spinner and finally to a wheel. Now there is no stopping this train! I am totally in love with all things Fiber and Fiber Art related.

Now many years later, I am a full time Fiber Artist. I enjoy creating different colorways, blending fibers and overall creating works of art for you to spin, felt, dye, knit and crochet with! I really love finding those hidden gems throughout the world and bringing them to you for your enjoyment. Beautiful Locks, Sparkly Fibers, Super Soft Luxury Fibers, Blended Rolags, Gorgeous Batts, Handspun Yarns, Indie Dyed Yarns and Handmade OOAK Items just for you!
