Happy Fuzzy Yarn at TNNA

Welcome to Happy Fuzzy Yarn! I make yarn and fiber for people who not only like yarn, or even love yarn. I make yarn and fiber for people who lust after yarn. People who are obsessed with yarn. And by “are obsessed with” I mean “want to roll around naked in.”

Does that sound like you? If it does, you know what I’m talking about. And you’re in the right place. This is where you’ll find handspun yarn that will make you drool. Hand dyed yarn that will make you moan. And fiber that will make you blush.
