For the Love of Yarn

I am here to confess my love affair with yarn. I can get lost for HOURS, yes hours, on Etsy looking at yarn... Handdyed, Handspun, Recycled... yarn. The colors! The textures! The possibilities!

I have happily purchased from Evergreen Creations, CRAFTY, and play at life fiber arts. My favorites are filled with listings of yarn. I am constantly window shopping. Do you share this love of yarn? Have a favorite that I haven't listed? Please! Leave a comment and let me know.

And if you haven't seen these previous posts, take a look...

Some favorites (listed top to bottom correlating to image above left to right):

I love yarn, and you're tempting me with new shops to explore

I love yarn to feel of all the different textures...but I don't do anything with yarn...just look and feel.

We have a lot of the same favorite sellers. I love yarn. I have a drop spindle and have been working on making my own, but I don't think that will stop the addiction. :)

Yum! Thanks for including me - I see a few of my favorites in your list, and I'll be checking out the others as well.

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
