About Me

A picture of me

The art of hand dyeing wool for me came from necessity.  I took one class and I was hooked; but I couldn’t find any wool fabric locally.  So, in 2002 I bought a book and taught myself how to dye.  Soon, I realized that other people wanted hand dyed wool too.  That same year I launched an online store called A Plaid Wool Company.  At the time, I was really loving all things “plaid.”

Fast forward to 2018.  I’ve taken my company in a new direction and renamed it “West Coast Wool.”  I wanted to change things up a bit, focus on a brighter color palette and let you know as customers what part of the country I call home.

As well as dyeing wool, I teach regular wool applique workshops at local shops.  In my spare time I enjoy knitting, embroidery, quilting, and folk art painting.
