Hello everyone!

As promised, I am continuing to scout local talent every week and serving it to you right here, on our Perspective blog.

This week I would like to introduce Queen Bee Fibers, a company founded by Lexi Parisse who is a fiber artist and beekeeper.

Aside from fiber works, Lexi produces amazing bath and beauty products:

SHEEPY SOAP:

As seen in Whole Foods stores, this product contains Raw wool that is completely dissolved into the soap, dispersing the fiber’s proteins and the lanolin.

More info is available here.

Now, let’s jump to my favorite part – the fibers!

Fiber fiends, you need to get your hands on these for your next project.

This yarn was spun in New York and hand dyed in Lexi’s own kitchen in New Jersey. You can’t get more local then that!

Lexi is also creator of the Snurtle, an amazing multi-functional fall/winter must have.

Easy to use with snaps, there are so many way’s to style these. Just utilize the snaps differently!
