This blog is my opportunity to share information, thoughts, and opinions about the yarn and fiber world. I will write about the development of the yarns from wools I find at local northwest farms. I find high quality wool from farms that hand raise their sheep as if they were family! The raw materials are local and great to work with. Since I am an avid knitter, developing my own yarns and seeking out fibers seemed like a logical and creative next step. Although the natural colors are beautiful by themselves I also develop colors and hand dye the yarns.
The small town of Jorstad Creek is found on the shores of Hood Canal on highway 101. I found myself stopping at this wide spot in the road because of the incredible view, and the little fishing shack next to a sandy spit that reaches into the water. For some reason this simple, quiet place set me to dreaming about what I would do if I took my hobby and made it a business. Developing a product that supports the hardworking shepherds and farmers of the northwest made sense to me. Since this daydream of mine started at Jorstad Creek, I named my company after the place that launched it all.
I hope you will check back for updates!
