Suzoo's Wool Works has been going strong since before 2004, first as a Rug Hooking Studio then as a Yarn Shop. From there Suzoo's grew in to a purveyor of yarn, fiber, and wool fabric. The shop was founded in Costa Mesa, CA then moved to Bandera, TX in 2014. The shop is located in Gone Quiltin' in Bandera, TX creating the perfect marriage between the sewing and fiber arts.
Suzoo's Wool Works has been through many transformations over the years to meet the needs of the fiber arts community. I focus in on yarns and fibers that are 100% Made in the U.S.A. We have been proudly selling Brown Sheep and Kraemer yarns for nearly 12 years now. Both companies are U.S. born and raised. Brown Sheep has been a fav in the knit, spin and felt communities. Kraemer produces some of our favorite washable yarns and you will see Perffection DK on the shelves for any use from baby to adult knit projects.
In 2007 The Sheepwalk Fiber Arts Studio™ was born and meant to be a product of Suzoo's. You see, Suzoo's isn't just about selling yarn. I teach fiber arts classes in several locations, demonstrate when ever possible, try to bring back the Texas Wool to the locals and in the Summers I am a fine arts teacher at Hill Country Arts Foundation in Ingram TX. New in 2017 I will be stepping in to our middle school to teach some basics in fiber arts design. And, my fingers are still crossed for the future Kerrvile Fiber Arts Festival!
I used both local wool and angora from Bandera as much as possible. Our local wool is from the Lindig family and my locks come from the Naumann Farms. You may not have known this but Texas is the largest producer of fine wool in the U.S. Angora and cotton are going just as strong too.
So yes, Suzoo's is a yarn shop. I will always keep Suzoo's alive for my Mother and all the artists who have brought their talents to us over the years. And yes, I will continue forward with The Sheepwalk FAS™ because it's a part of the Suzoo's family now.
All the best, Jennifer
