to the Midwest Fiber Company. I hope you find this site to be a good
source of information when you begin thinking about llama and alpaca
fiber. My mission is to promote the joy of working with llama and
alpaca to fiber enthusiasts everywhere!
artist Lee Ann King is the
creative force behind Midwest Fiber
Company. MWFC is not a mill or a production business. Everything I work
with starts as a raw fleece and becomes a wonderful product. I believe
in supporting the US camelid farmer and US processing mills. Check out
the list of fiber farms and processing mills
that I have been involved with. My own small herd of 12 llamas doesn’t
produce enough fiber for all the yarn I want to design so I had to head
to the fields! I’ve purchased fabulous fleeces from these friends and
what fun to see the animal that has provided the fleece that will
yarns are my favorite. Once I
determine what type of yarn the llama and alpaca fleeces are best
suited for, they are skirted and sent to the mill. Our fiber processing
mills have a multitude of spinning techniques like multi colored yarn,
lopi style, lace weight, bouclè and more. I hand paint and dye much of
the yarn after it’s been spun at the mill. Dyeing is another design
element that allows me to create. I so enjoy being able to offer you
such luscious yarn and roving to work with.
will be vending at a number of fiber
festivals and shows this year. A special thank you to Lisa, Nina,
Dianne, Cindy, Amy, Wendy and the Michigan Wooly Women for their lovely
creations that help fill my vendor booth. Please stop by to visit.
