Just back from a yarn crawl through Europe.  Found some absolutely gorgeous hand-dyed, and ecologically sound yarns from two different sisters' cottage industries.  Both companies have a great sense of color and fiber.  My most treasured find, though, was 100% pure cashmere from Kyrgyzstan--a fair trade operation run by two brothers.

When I'm able to get in my new studio, I'll feature some of the yarns and share the sources with you.  So far, these are not available in the US.  In the meantime, May your 2017 be blessed with bright colors and wonderful inspiration!   micki

Sweatshirts Don't Have to be Boring!

Tired of looking dull and frumpish when donning your sweatshirt.  Men: frumpish is gender suggestive, but you too can spark up your game with a comfy Brazen Sheep sweatshirt.  Each one is unique; no two alike ever.

While the "flower" in the picture below looks appliqued, it is not.  It's a technique used similarly in making molas, Central American fabric designs.  The flower is sewn from the inside and then the outer fabric is cut away to reveal the fabric design.  The hem and cuffs of this particular sweatshirt are strips of the 100% cotton material.  Great care is given to selecting the perfect design arrangement of the cutout.

Other models include a comic strip series, lady bugs, chickens, etc.  The basic sweatshirts are either Hanes or Fruit of the Loom, fully washable and machine dryable.

The red sweatshirt has purple lines and zig-zags to brighten your day. The teal shirt is oversize for added comfort or just perfect for us soft, cuddly types.

Comfy AND Beautiful!
Other models available or custom made to your wishes

Tis Winter Once Again
With Winter comes a bright new array of colors.  This knitted, then felted bag is among the brightest of hues to compete with the autumn leaves.  The bag is lined with equally bright colors, zippered, and has leather handles.

Happy Autumn!


Take a Peek at What's Available

Brazen Sheep is a site for fiber lovers. 

The designs you see as you move from one page to another are either one-of-a-kind or templates for the original patterns listed separately.  These completed pieces may or may not be up for adoption.  If they are, the items will be noted with size, fiber content, and price.

   Here you will see what has tumbled from the mind and fingers of fiber artist Micki Smith.  When she’s in her studio (the better part of any calendar segment), she’s available via e-mail to answer knitting questions, spur on your own creative juices, or act as a resource.
