Ozark Handspun

Ozark HandspunOver twenty years ago, my wife and I bought a small farm and we inherited two ewes. The next spring, we had two fleeces, and Ozark Handspun was born.
 

Six years later, with a growing family to support, there was not enough time to be an artist, a father, a farmer, and a provider. So, we left the farm and moved to town to provide greater opportunities for our daughter. That winter, in 1986, all the spinning equipment and Ozark Handspun went in to hibernation.



In 2003, semi-retired and visiting our daughter in California, we walked into a yarn shop and could not believe the interest in knitting and all the unusual yarns available today. Some were wonderful, but I told my wife, "I can make yarns better than some of these."
 

We came home to Missouri and called an old friend from 20 years back to buy some raw wool and mohair. Out from storage came the spinning wheel and equipment. I immediately began washing, dyeing, carding, and spinning. Ozark Handspun was reborn.
 

These yarns are created especially for you. Living in the Ozark hills overlooking the Missouri River, we choose our lambs and goats for the natural colored fibers.
