Shop update, 3/7

Hello! Now that Madrona Fiber Arts and Rose City Yarn Crawl are in the books, I’ve got a bit of time to update my shop. I’m kicking things off with my Willow sock yarn, a soft but durable blend of superwash Blue Faced Leicester and nylon — tough enough for socks, but with subtle luster and drape that makes it shine as a shawl or sweater yarn. You’ll also find spinning fiber, including my custom blend of 75% Targhee and 25% silk, and a smattering of gradients in both fingering and DK weights.

If you’re in the Puget Sound area, my next trunk show is Saturday, March 24 at Serial Knitters in Kirkland, WA. You’ll also see me at the Whidbey Weavers spin-in in Oak Harbor, WA, which is open to the public on Saturday, April 7.

Introducing Sandpiper Yarns

Sandpiper yarns is inspired by nature and the colors that surround us. My fiber is sourced from family farms, both domestic and abroad. I hand paint fleece roving and then spin it on my Ladybug wheel, all in my home, two blocks from the ocean on the south shore of Long Island. I choose many sheep breeds, including Merino, Blue Faced Leicester, Polwarth, Finn, Gotland, Icelandic, Corriedale and Targhee. Additionally, alpaca, llama, Tencel, silk and Angora may also find their way into my skeins.

My dyeing process combines hand mixing many colors and then overdyeing for rich saturation. Each small colorway batch is one-of-a-kind and produces between two to 10 skeins per batch.

All Sandpiper yarns are handspun. The spinning process is spontaneous —- deciding in the moment whether it will be bulky, worsted or in between! It is a meditative technique that allows me to be part of a sustainable cycle of turning fleece to garment that has endured for thousands of years!

If the winter blues have got you down, I’ve got the perfect remedy. I’ve been busy creating beautiful new color ways and adding yummy fibers to the shop, all guaranteed to inspire you and add a smile to your face.

There are six sets for each style to choose from, or you can message me for help creating your own custom colorway!
