Do you sell at shows?
Occasionally, but not on a regular basis. I'm one of the co-organizers of YarnCon, Chicago's fiber fair focused on independent fiber artists and businesses, so I know how much fun shows can be. If you know of one I should check out, let me know!
Do you do wholesale?
Not yet, but it's in the works, with an expected launch in mid to late summer. Please message me via the Contact page with your interest. I am working on a standard catalog, but am also interested in developing exclusives with retailer partners.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes! I love working directly with customers, and take on as many custom orders as I can reasonably fill. If I say no, it's either because I have a full schedule and don't want to promise you something I can't deliver, or because the project falls outside what I know I can do well. Head on over to the Contact page and let's talk!
What exactly is a "Balwen," anyway?
The Balwen ("white blaze" in Welsh) is a rare breed of Welsh mountain sheep with a distinctive hourglass facial marking, a quirky but pleasant personality, and durable but easy-to-spin fiber.
