My name is Jane and I live with my husband, Ian, on Eyre Peninsula in South Australia, where we have a farm and grow wheat and sheep.
My interest in wool started as a child when I learnt to knit
at 8yrs old.
When I moved to Kimba, I helped out in the shearing shed and just loved the sheep.
I learnt to spin and was always knitting, but eventually children came along and life became too hectic for spinning and knitting!
The spinning wheel left the loungeroom, and I just knitted for the children.
When the children got older, I was still knitting, but now it cost an arm and a leg to buy the yarn.
I decided that It was time to oil up my spinning wheel and spin my own yarn again. We still had plenty of sheep!
When the children left home, I found I could spend much more time with my fibre and yarn dyeing.
There is an endless varieties of colours to play with and create wonderful colourways.
I never fail to be fascinated with wool and fibre, and the endless variety available.
I just love the wonderful creative people it brings into my life.
