Madeline, aka the Wooly Witch of the West, is a fiber artist living wild in the woods of Northwestern Montana who focuses mainly on natural dyeing and handspinning. She endeavors to source her materials as locally and sustainably as possible, working with small scale ranchers for fiber and harvesting many of her dye plants from the surrounding woods. Each time she steps outside is a hunt for color, and she has a small army of family and friends saving their onion skins and avocado pits for her. Most recently she has been published for the first time in the Spring issue of Spin-Off magazine! She offers naturally dyed, natural fiber yarns, local Montana Millspun yarns that are breed specific, handspun yarns for special projects, as well as naturally dyed and hand blended fiber for fellow spinners.
