About Karen: I am a mother of 7 and grandmother of 22! I consider this the best part of my life. I live in Wyoming in a big old log house by a creek and life is good. I have always loved wool, starting with my roots in Colorado. When I was 16, I was given some wool from our neighbor’s sheep and so I went to the library and learned how to wash it up. I had it spread all over the grass… and the journey began. Learning how to crochet and knit followed and then spinning and weaving classes in college.
The Wool Mill adventure started when my last child was in school, and a good friend and I started thinking about starting a business! When we started looking into a wool business the road took some very interesting twists and turns and by 2007 we started the mill. We are now in our 16th year, and it is a spinning, whirling factory! www.mountainmeadowwool.com
