Let Me Introduce Myself

Who am I?  I'm Dolores Jacobs and I have been weaving on a floor loom, spinning with drop spindles and spinning wheels, dyeing and processing raw wool fleece, alpaca, mohair and exotic fibers for many years.  

Previous Experience:  My husband & I owned plant nurseries for over 20 years, after retiring from the nursery business I now have time to pursue my passion with fiber arts.

What do I do?  Fleece and Fiber is what I love!  Understanding what a hand-spinner requires in a fleece, I am able to provide the best selection of breeds and quality raw or processed fleece.  I have made YouTube Videos teaching weaving and discussing spinning, dyeing and other fiber arts.

Education:  I am mostly self taught in most of my arts.  I am currently learning to spin better by taking: Spinning & Fiber Extravaganza online course.  I have also earned my certification as a Master Scourer.  Learning never ends, I am constantly learning and exploring something new.

Saving Endangered Breeds:  I am an authorized provider for the Livestock Conservancy's, Shave 'em to Save 'em program to encourage the use of rare breed sheep's wool.  I locate and deal with small farms and local shepherds to source wool from these wonderful breeds. 

My Mission:  Keeping these heritage breeds in use and educate or introduce them to as many people as possible. I also want to keep the weaving and spinning traditions alive.  Creating hand-made items is what I enjoy doing.

I Need Your Help:  Please join me in exposing the next generation to this wonderful way of life.  Teach them weaving, spinning, and the importance of keeping the rare breeds alive.
