Bootsie hand spins fiber from her own flock of fine wool sheep, with Columbia and Rambouillet bloodlines. Her yarn varies from bulky to worsted weight, and is available in several natural shades, as well as a range of dyed colors. The price ranges from $4.00 to $5.00 per ounce.


In addition to yarn from her own sheep, Bootsie has alpaca yarn available. She spins fiber for the Teddy Bear Alpaca Ranch and sells some of the yarn and products she has knitted with it. The yarn comes in natural colored brown, black, gray and white, as well as dyed colors, and sells for $6.00 to $7.00 per ounce.
