Wool lock yarn. Most is Coopworth, but she has some Shetland (the brown on the left hand side on the first picture of the lock yarn) and some Navaho Churro (not pictured.)

Two of Laurie's shawls made from her yarn, The first is llama and the second Merino.

Laurie has also made hardware yarn, q-tip yarn, drinking straw yarn and much more. Sorry I don't have any more pictures!


  1. It was very helpful to see the last two photos, because I've always wondered if anyone DOES anything with that funky art yarn!

  2. Absolutely beautiful! I would have never guessed you could make so many different types of yarn. I yes it is nice to see what you can actually do with this yarn.

  3. Thanks for sharing the photos Laura. Very inspiring work!

  4. I have aspirations to make Art Yarn someday. I have to learn how to spin well enough first. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  5. amazing. Thanks for the photos. So THAT's what I could do with all those nice, clean chicken feathers. But would I wear it?
