Rainbow Twist Handspun
I began my love of yarn and fiber as a teen, when my mom taught me to knit. I am a working professional by day, and so creating beautiful yarn and fiber is a true passion of mine. When I first knitted with handspun yarn my universe shifted! The unique look and feel of it, the color and texture and endless artistic possibilities just blew me away. I learned to spin yarn on a spinning wheel from a sheep farmer and took off on my own road to artistic discovery. Though I don't own my own sheep, I love to carefully wash, dye, spin, and knit/weave high quality wool fleece and locks. I also love working with people on custom orders, helping make their artistic dreams come true!
Handspun yarn is a luxury, I realize that. Hours of work go into planning, spinning, and finishing a handspun yarn. I believe in using, and paying for, the highest quality ingredients/materials and support sheep farmers and dyers with my finished products. I really appreciate every customer. Please remember, behind every handmade object is a real person creating from the heart!
Wishing you creative joy,
Owner, Artist, Spinner
My love of knitting with fine handspun yarn drove me to learn how to spin my own yarn on a spinning wheel. I love colors and textures and derive much joy from using them in my work. Now I wash and dye wool as well!
If you need some ideas and advice about how to use textured/bulky/artsy yarns I can help!
If you have a special need for doll hair, such as felting, let me know.
