"Priceless" just seems to fit






"Priceless" is the word I use when I am sitting in complete bliss at my wheel. To know that I have my hands on one of my sweet animals fleece that has taken a full year to grow (Rafael is in this one) feeling it slip thru my fingers as my feet treadle at a steady pace like the heart beat of that very same animal. Then to take that yarn and start the dyepots going only to be swept up in the magical process of placing colors on my lastest creation. The time I spend may have to been calculated in order to determine the selling price but in my heart each second I spend with my animals, their fiber and making a finished yarns for my clients is "PRICELESS".

I hope you might find this offering worthy of going home with you - small price to pay for such love and devotion I have to the process.

I love to see things made with our own hands, here in America. It amazes me the quality of your work and the amazing colors you achieve. To see the process of grass turning into yarn is something 99% of people in this County have no concept of. They just pick up the imported, cheap kind from the store. How I wish I could knit something more than a square(and a bad one at that).

This is beautiful. I love the idea of creating with something that you love and care for, that is loyal and faithful. I think that's one of the reasons I enjoy working with wool so much. Your yarn looks just wonderful!

Thank you so much ladies for the very kind words. I feel so blessed to care for these remarkable four legged loved ones and it just seem to show when I work with their fiber...
