It's All About the Goats
a heartfelt welcome to my website
I'm happy to have you "browse by"-- in honor of our mid-October 2018 launch of the site, I'll be offering free shipping for a month !
From the beginning, this area of WNC called Appalachia has drawn folks with a fiber background -- settlers from England, Ireland & Scotland who raised sheep and brought with them a rich heritage in fiber arts. They raised the animals and processed the fiber, step by step, into clothing.
I replicate that process as closely and sustainably as possible -- raising my angora goats, having their fiber spun into yarn, then hand-painting the skeins for customers…from pasture to product, goat to garment !
Give a call and come meet the goats -- "where fiber makes friends" !
