Katie McLaughlin

Sheep-to-Shawl & In-Between

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. She washes, cards, picks, and spins the wool into yarn completely by hand. The colors of her yarn come from the various natural browns and grays of her sheep.
