This adventure began back in 1997 when I was living in Spanaway, WA, on 1.5 acres. At that time I had a dozen hens, 6 sheep and an angora goat. I spent my days chasing kids, caring for my critters, and spinning wool into yarn. My husband decided to turn our garage into a fiber studio to give me a place to store my many wheels and newly acquired floor looms. It is at this time that my life made a bit of a detour. Somehow that fiber studio became a yarn shop. Which was soon outgrown and the shop moved to 4631 Pacific Ave.in Tacoma, WA. I was the proprietress of Lamb's Ear Yarn for 12 years. And 12 years in retail is plenty long enough. In 2011, at the age of 52, I was able to retire and return to the lifestyle that I love.
My life has come full circle.
In 2014 I moved to Winlock, WA. I now live in a 1904 converted schoolhouse on one acre. Willoughby Croft was born.
I raise high quality registered Mini Nubian Dairy Goats, Crested Cream Legbar and American Bresse Gauloise Chickens. Life is good.
