Prideful things

I am not one for tooting my own horn but I just have to share a couple of neat things I am proud of!

The feature article in Spin-Off magazine is about the CVM/Romeldale breed and I was happy to provide the fleece to Robin Russo for her project. There is also a photo of Bea and Peach side by side within the article. So yea for CVM/Romeldales and our small part in bringing awareness to the breed! Please be sure to get a copy of Spin-Off to read the article.

This spring I was chosen to create a palette of naturally dyed colors for a prominent spinnery in the US. I have been working on the details with them for months and next week I begin to do the dyeing using a yarn they have chosen for the line. I am so excited to be a part of the project and although I cannot spill the beans about who I am working with I can say this is the culmination of years of studying and learning and working with natural dyes. What a great feeling.

Stay tuned for news as it unfolds by late summer!


  1. What exciting news! I'll be sure to pick up the new Spin-off!

    Congrats on everything! The Yankee work ethic does pay off doesn't it.

    No one is more worthy of accolades than you.

    See you in a while I hope.

  3. I just finished reading my copy of Spin-Off and had noticed the nod to you and your sheepies. NICE! Congrats on ALL your endeavors. :)
