Purple Lamb is a fiber store on Etsy, linked here. I have found that Etsy is a great source of fiber material, but it can be a little overwhelming. Purple Lamb, however, is a great place to shop. I have purchased some, and plan to purchase more, of Ms. Hanson's beautiful art batts. They arrived quickly, were well packaged, and most importantly...they were BEAUTIFUL. They have been a true pleasure to spin. I'm playing with one called "Rainy Day" right now on my new bulky flyer and cannot wait to share it when it's done. The owner and artist of this shop does a wonderful job blending colors as well as making a cohesive concept. I find that some yarns, wools, and batts have snappy names that grab your attention but when you actually look at the item, it is hard to discern how the name is connected at all. That is not the case with Linda Hanson. Her concepts are clever and the colors and materials she chooses really demonstrate the concepts well.
While I have only purchased art batts from her, she does have yarn, scarves, and finished fiber garments available in her store. She has recently started an art batt monthly subscription, as well. In addition to all of this, she also maintains a website at www.purplelambfiberarts.com and has a presence on social media. (I enjoy following her Instagram.) Also, as a perk, I have noticed she runs a fair number of sales on her goods, and who doesn't love a sale?
I believe her fiber journey mirrors a lot of ours out there. Right down to balancing an artistic journey with kids and family. I am really happy to support her shop when I can and in some small way maybe help to feed her own fiber habit so she can keep creating beauty for the rest of us.
Bottom Line: Check out Linda Hanson's Etsy store called Purple Lamb. She has some real show stoppers there. And it's always nice to support small businesses and artists, especially when they deliver quality products.
