Nora, our naughty turkey hen. She has returned from spending most of her time in the woods. We suspect she had a clutch of (non-fertile) eggs.

July 22, 2014. Another hot day here in the mountains!

SpinningFiber, Inc. is up and going--a simple coding glitch had held up the cart.

We have a mountain of fibers, plus great wheel and spinning and weaving equipment and supplies.
We are very, very proud to be dealers of the best: Schacht, Schacht-Reeves, Majacraft, Strauch, Ashford, Louet, Ashland Bay, and fibers sourced world-wide.

Various fibers and other odds and ends are on close-out (on etsy). Pages with new multicolor merino and merino-silks will be updated. Old is going, new is in.

As things permit we will add fibers we have not seen available in the US. New stuff! Yeh! Our goal is to be _the_ source of the broadest range of fibers available.

Although one mask maker purchased all the remaining honey gold mohair that we had cleaned the importer's shelves of, we do have COARSE RED CAMEL. It had been unvailable for many, many months.

We are only using this acquired site until such time that can be built from the ground up... with modern website features! It's a big job! First is to select from the available shop building software. At more than 225 pages, this site is a dated, Frankenstein-like hodge-podge.

Bill was proud of his spinning wheel shipment to the U.S. embassy in Afghanistan a while ago, but we've got him beat! Our first wheel sale to China! Ha, take that!

We look forward to meeting you all! Thank you so very much during this period of new beginnings!

I can still be reached at, checking that address for questions, advice, final orders/follow-up, warranties, etc.

Someone recently told me that anything in the past is a "story". Copper Moose is now such a story. I have many great stories and wonderful customers from around the globe (Thank YOU, Australia), referrals, vendors. Thank you all, sincerely. There were good times, and particularly challenging ones. I realized last fall that Copper Moose was the last step of grief in terms of "letting go" to move on. Also, it was the convergence of many different paths, leading to new ones.

I am working to engage full time in my passion -- marketing communications, presentations, and video. It is in my blood, and calls to me. Also, I want to work in a different arena; with a broader, positive cultural impact.

But, there is a _new_ story. As I decided to move on through this convergence of events, I advised two acquaintances who were interested in moving forward on a _new_ spinning and fibers endeavor.

Teressa and the more "silent" Jeanette are SpinningFiber, Inc. They began stocking up inventory with tax refunds, and finalized their acquisition of remaining assets not long ago. They have some use of my brain (such as it is) during the transfer. Tough negotiators they are, I got the shorter stick.

I'd like to remind everyone of my 2012 music, located at, under the "Atmosphere Music" link. For traditionalists, I recommend "Ellen", moving from there to the ambient "Rays" and "Drift". For those who like jungle rain, there is "Rain". Believe it or not, that piece took over 3 months of work to put together (as did "Ellen."). Deceptively complex. On the other hand, "Breathe" came together in about 4 hours.

It is not more than a hobby. However, after turning down an invitation from the Recording Academy (those who vote on the Grammy's), um, well, 20 years ago, it is a personal "bucket-list" goal to be re-invited and accept. This means... well, not waiting 10 years until the next recording. There is another small detail to be taken care of, but I've got a few extremely talented friends in support of this creativity.

That is one of my all-too-often characteristic digressions. In conclusion, I again would like to thank everyone I have had the good fortune to work with during the 12+years. First as being the behind the scenes thrust of, then torch-bearer of Copper Moose.

Warmth and light to all. With all my heart, Bill

Returns for fibers and small items (hand cards, bobbins, dyes) are 14 days and money back or merchandise credit, but I can be flexible. Most equipment such as spinning wheels and drum carders are not returnable once opened/used. It is hard to get some of the items back into the box, and some dealer rules maintain that returned items can only be sold as new, so therefore, they must be new and unused. We work with manufacturers, shipping insurance, warranty, and in some cases our own personal warranty to resolve any issues by replacing parts as needed.

Jezibel, born July 15th, joined us today. 2 months ahead of the date, it is my preferred alternative to wood for our fifth anniversary. Wood represents strength, solidity and warmth – and is the traditional material of the fifth anniversary. I wanted a cow. Well, she is all of those characteristics.

My dear old goat of a husband claimed it is spelled "Jezebel." I gave him that famous female glare. He googled about to find out that Jezibel is the Phoenician spelling of Jezebel (whose father was Phoenician, truth be told.)
Tommy is sleeping, not fainted (above). Dukey (above right) and Tommy are Nigerian Dwarf goats. Used rescue goats, as a matter of fact. It is amazing what you can barter for with fresh chicken and turkey eggs! Below left...brats who are kids. Below who are brats.
