Let Fiberwerks provide you with unique hand-spun yarn!
The yarn (and other fiber pieces) made at Fiberwerks is special: even skeins made from the same type of wool will be different. The Fiberwerks studio is not a production house where every product looks like previous products. I take great pleasure in creating hand-made items that are special: some yarns are traditional two-ply worsted, or three-ply (chain ply) bulky. There are super bulky (art style) yarns, and fine lace weight yarns. I source wool from a variety of vendors on Etsy and sheep farms around the country. Most of my yarns are natural colors: black, gray, brown, moorit, ecru, cream, white — just as the wool looks on the animal. Most, but not all, of my yarns are next-to-the-skin-soft, meaning the fibers are below 23 microns. That micron count — smaller is softer — is so important! Some yarns that have a micron count of more than 30 are better suited for long-wearing rugs, or for outerwear. I try to label everything I make, but sometimes it just says “wool,” “alpaca,” or “mix of fibers.” If you want special yarn for a project, let me know. I will do my best to delight you.
I began to explore the fiber world over 20 years ago, first by dyeing silk scarves using the French Serti technique. I took courses in making felt rugs, dolls, and wall hangings. I bought a Lendrum spinning wheel and wool roving on impulse at the Michigan
