Kate Larson loves using fiber arts as a bridge between her passions for art and agriculture. Her fiber journey has led her to a degree in Environmental Soil Chemistry, travels through northern Europe in search of textile traditions, and back to the farm where her family has lived for six generations. She keeps an ever-growing flock of Border Leicester sheep and teaches handspinning and knitting regularly in central Indiana and around the country. Kate’s work has appeared in publications including Spin-Off Magazine, Jane Austen Knits, and Knitting Sweaters from Around the World. Her first book, The Practical Spinner’s Guide: Wool, will be available November 2015. She manages the Spinner’s Connection blog at spinningdaily.com.
