Katie McLaughlin, Fiber Artist
Katie McLaughlin lives in Tazewell County, Virginia. Katie has raised sheep and hand-spun their wool for over 20 years. Her Lincoln, Cotswold, and Leicester Longwool sheep are all long-wooled varieties which make them wonderful for spinning. She does every step in the process by hand washing, carding, picking, and spinning the wool into yarn which she knits and felts into sweet little sheep. The colors of her yarn all come from the various natural browns and grays of her flock.
