Lisa has her own vision of the world and the colors in these hand dyed mill spun yarns are from deep in her imagination or from just outside, in her gardens, where Mother Nature gets it right.
Three decades of taking fleeces through all forms of preparation have led to the conclusion that life is too short to spin with second rate fibers and so everything that you find within this section is pure heaven to spin. From long wools to downy cashmere, you can feel confident that they are the best that can run through your fingers.
