About Us

Phoenix all started with an alpaca. Yes, those fuzzy little animals that will win your heart with their sweet sounds, huge dreamy eyes and luxurious fibers. We welcomed a few out to our rural ranch in southern Colorado and raised these amazing animals for their fluffy fiber. After the first shear, we were hooked. And after picking, washing, and carding the fleeces, the process blossomed into a wonderful world of colors, textures and textiles. We grew the business using small shows, word of mouth and, with a little help from social media, we quickly realized the desire for home spun and home made goods were still very …

About Us

Yarn Hero Fiber Arts is a colorful boutique for the knitter, spinner, crocheter, weaver, and fiber artist. Featuring unique hand-dyed, millspun yarns that work up into fun gradient stripes, traditional hand-dyed yarn, handspun yarn, and hand-dyed spinning fibers. Yarn Hero is a one-woman-owned business run by Lynnell Koser out of her home studio in Frederick, Maryland.

Yarn Hero’s signature yarn line is their ColorMix Yarn collection, a process in which the wool is hand painted first, and then sent to a local, family-run spinning mill to spin into yarn. The result is a yarn that mimics handspun yarn with exciting color changes, marling, gradients, and long striping patterns. Make sure to check out Yarn Hero’s other yarn collections: Stipple – a solid yarn that stripes with specks of color, Opaque – a traditionally dyed semi-solid, and Etch – a single ply yarn with fun gradient stripes. Yarn Hero also offers unique handspun yarn, loaded with texture and color. Mostly bulky and super bulky, these yarns are perfect …

About Us

The Spinning Loft is the go-to source for breed-specific fiber.

We stock raw fleece and processed roving and top from a wide variety of breeds and we normally have more than 50 distinct breeds in stock at any time. Here at The Spinning Loft we focus on conservation and heritage breeds from around the world, and work with shepherds to give them an outlet for their wool, thus helping them preserve their flocks and their way of life.

Wool of every type, from fine wool to multi-coated, is available for spinning. We also stock scour, processing tools, spindles, wheels, and looms to take your project from raw fleece to finished heirloom. We are indeed a one stop shop for all things wooly!
