What got you interested in your art of choice?
We both got interested in the fiber arts as a way of carrying on a family legacy – as the years go by we just get dragged deeper into the rabbit hole. Our new adventure in 2015 was weaving, and we added two floor looms to the family.


Do you have a favorite item or colorway?
I’m especially fond of our new custom blends – especially the Lapiz lazuli blend.


What is something you strive to offer the fiber arts community?
We love to use our backgrounds as a scientist and engineer to bring a new take on fiber arts tools and supplies.

What is your fiber arts superpower?
Ambidextrous spinning.
