I first became interested in fiber arts about twenty years ago when a spinning friend came over while I was brushing out my dog.
She saw the fluffy under coat and said "That would make the softest yarn you could ever imagine!"
So after a few quick lessons on a drop spindle, I was hooked and soon after bought my first spinning wheel: the odyssey had began.
After spinning enough dog fur to make slippers and mittens for the kids, I bought a few shetland sheep and the flock grew slowly to include corriedale sheep, angora goats, and a llama. In 2006, we moved and I was no longer able to borrow my friend's wool picker. I found myself needing one of my own-but I wanted something different, something safer and smaller, something easier to transport. I told my family what I had in mind and we all sat down together and started "what-iffing", and that lead to the devolpment of our first box-style wool picker,and with a few improvements the Lil Dynamo was born!
