wisewomanherbals' Shop Announcement

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Wise Woman Herbals.

A small portion of my profits goes to financing micro-loans to women in other countries through Kiva.org. So far I've helped a woman in Kyrgizstan buy sheep, a woman in Uganda buy chickens and build a chicken coop, and another woman in Kyrgizstan buy fertilizers, calves, and build a barn - all $25 at a time, and all with profits from my Etsy shop.

My shop started out selling herbal products made with my home-grown and wild harvested herbs. I have since branched out mainly into handspun, hand-dyed yarns. Many of my yarns start out as raw fleeces (wool straight from the sheep) and are dyed with natural dyes grown in my garden or wild-harvested. I also use commercial dyes. For more a about my products, keep reading:

I carefully research the herbs I use so that only safe, gentle, but effective, plants go into my products.

I grow what herbs I can in my garden, wild harvest what's around me, and obtain the rest from organic sources.

If you're interested, please see my blogpost about comfrey, and why I'll never use it:

As for my handspun yarns, the majority are spun on my spinning wheel, although I sometimes use my drop spindles. I dye a lot of the fiber myself, often using natural dyes grown in my garden or wild-harvested.

Both my herbal products and my fiber products are conscientiously created with you, the customer, in mind.
