The Spun Monkey is a love affair with process, with creative collaboration, with a patch of grass. Wool from small family farms is lovingly crafted into artful supplies for knitting, weaving and crochet or wet-felted into joyful adornments to keep you cozy.
Shannon is currently relocating to southern Vermont (again) and will happily spend winter spinning on her Lendrum by the woodstove.
Eling is obsessed with color, fiber, and food. rhinofluff is the new home for her line of unique handspun & hand-dyed yarns, fiber, kits, tools and gifts for spinners, felters, and knitters.
Formerly known as traveling rhinos, rhinofluff has the same dedication to color, texture, and quality. Just a new name-- still just as soft and fuzzy! Hand-dyed wool tops, hand-carded wool batts, handspun art yarns... all created with an eye to color and individuality.
Everything is made by Eling, by hand, in her Boston-area studio. www.rhinofluff.com

Girl on the Rocks is an avid crafter who just wasn't satisfied with the tools and notions available to knitters and spinners. Karrie designs and produces instructional stitch markers, needle gauges, and tools for handspinners that combine function with cute designs and high quality materials.
When she isn't wrangling flocks of bamboo sheep, Karrie is probably spinning a yarn of her own.
