Using inspirations from antiquity and nature I individually design yarns and custom made knit wear of wool and angora from my own managed flock of sheep. All colors are from the sheep or the natural/vegetable dye pot. A sheep is sheared, the wool washed, dyed, picked, and carded. Each thread is spun one at at time on a spinning wheel, and is then hand knitted into custom made garments. Some fleece is sent to a mill that guarantees my wool back to me in a simple yarn that I often dye. Related products such as roving, blankets and sheep skins are sometimes available. There is nothing like wool to show comfort and connection to a sustainable and healthy environment.
