The Cosmic Vision
The vision of The Cosmic Spindle is to promote Fiber Arts and Primitive Folk Arts, and to keep these practices alive, thriving and relevant in these modern day times.
We create handmade, “one of a kind” and top quality products, using the practices of hand dying, spinning and weaving. We honour and revere the “older ways”.
The Cosmic Spindle aims to preserve these primitive skills, by capturing the magic and timelessness into our creations.
It is my hope, to keep Primitive Folk Arts and Fiber Arts alive, thriving and relevant in these modern day times. I strive to encapsulate the magic of the older ways into my creations of “one of a kind” Handspun Art Yarns, Warm Wooly Mountain Hats and Handwoven Rugs.
Why Choose Our Products
The Cosmic Spindle deeply honours the ancient teachings and practices from older times. We strive to keep these Primitive Folk Arts and Fiber Arts ALIVE and thriving in these modern day times.
We seek out the highest grade fibers for spinning, dying and fabricating creations. This means using only cleaned and carded wool that will be SUPER SOFT next to skin or underfoot.
The Cosmic Spindle workshop is a low impact, back to the land structure using sustainable energy to power and fuel its operation (woodstove for heat and fueling dye pots in the winter months). Human powered Spinning Wheels and Floor Looms!
We are motivated by the colourful beauty that surrounds us in this life. Nature gives forth much inspiration for creation. We are grateful everyday for this workshop in the forest where dreams and ideas manifest themselves into radiantly dyed ‘one of a kind’ pieces~ full of light, love and gratitude.
Supporting The Cosmic Spindle means supporting a grass roots cottage industry, woman owned and family powered business.
