What's New:
I began spinning fleece from Maine island sheep. I am now enchanted with luxary fibers and blends.
Member Profile:
These yarns are spun at my studio off the Maine Coast. The yarns (often luxury fibers) are soft spun thick and thin producing a yarn that gives interesting texture to the finished garment. The yarns are best suited for use on needles size 6 and up, since the yarns are soft spun they are not suited for socks yarns but make wonderful scarves, hats, mittens and sweaters. Many of the yarns are hand dyed in small batches so they are one of a kind.
Member Bio:
From her studio on Little Cranberry Island, overlooking the Great Harbor of Mount Desert and the mountains beyond, Sue Hill spins wool, silk, mohair and other fibers into yarns. Her dyes-bath colors are inspired by the ever changing color pallet of her island surroundings.

Sue has been a knitter since childhood and a spinier and dyer for the last 25 years. She is a member of the Wednesday Spinners, Maine Fiber Arts Association and has attended many fiber workshops.
