Taryn was introduced to knitting shortly after completing her undergraduate degrees in Microbiology and Music Theory at the University of Idaho, and it didn’t take long for her to become addicted to yarn and fiber arts.
Spinning was a natural progression, along with hand processing and dyeing fiber, though she hasn’t taken up weaving (yet). Fiber became a form of therapy and has helped her through personal, work and health
While spinning at a local alpaca farm several years ago, it became immediately obvious that Taryn was about to become an alpaca owner when she fell in love with Elvis - he watched the spinning wheel go round all day and gave her first “alpaca kiss". She now maintains a small herd of alpacas exclusively for fiber and enjoys teaching and sharing her enthusiasm and love for all things fiber related with others.
When not covered in fluff, Taryn works as a project manager and is currently pursuing her master’s degree in project management.
