About Us

Welcome! We are so glad you are here! My name is Kori and I cannot wait to connect with you and share all the wonderful things about this amazing fiber in our lives. I have a huge love for cats, tea, dinosaurs, and all things wool. I knit for 7 years before deciding to learn to spin and it was just a quick landslide into Fossil Fibers from there. 

We reside in Northern Michigan in beautiful wooded countryside that will inspire many colors that come to you. Do note that we are also a Cat-friendly home and our products are currently made where we live. Your safety is important to us and we know allergies can be very serious! Thank you for coming along on this woolly journey!

- Our Stance - 

Fossil Fibers wants it made clear that we feel strongly that racism, white supremacy, violence, hate speech, and any position that would remove the basic human right to live, pursue happiness, safety, and control over one’s own body has no home in our space or practices. If this offends you, our space is not for you.

We also maintain a commitment to keeping our operations as eco-friendly as possible. Our packaging will be recycled, reused, or compostable. We have practices reducing water use where we can. Our waste water from cleaning fleece is used in our gardens and we are looking into composting our waste wools. Caring for the earth is a responsibility we take seriously.

 - Wool Straight from the Farm - 

Some of our products are hand-processed with raw fleece straight from the farm. Sheep are living beings and have terrible table manners, so you might dig up food, bedding, or plant matter in your items. These items will have notices on them for being processed lovingly by hand. We do our absolute best to create a wool product with as few short fibers and vegetation as possible to provide you a lovely time working with our fiber. There is a small upcharge on our Farm fibers as well so that we may continue to pay farmers a fair price for the wool they spend all year, every year growing for us to enjoy! Supporting small farms and rare breeds is a big deal to us here. Being able to offer gorgeous breed specific wool takes many hours of preparation for even a single raw fleece. It is a labor of love and I couldn't be more proud to offer these to you!

Our hope is to maintain a line of fibers from rare or lesser-known sheep to aid conservation efforts. We want these wools to continue to be something you can see and feel instead of becoming fossils themselves. We hope these wools are as exciting to you as they are to us! To further our support, we are a part of the Livestock Conservancy SE2SE program that supports rare breeds and the My Local Wool map that helps connect customers with local farms and processors.

 - Return Policy and Shipping Overage - 

We work really hard to ensure you are happy with your order, but we know things arise. We will accept returns so long as we receive contact about any errors within 14 days of delivery and items shipped back at buyer's expense within 30 days of delivery. We are unable to cancel orders or accept returns on any custom spun orders. If the item arrives damaged upon return, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. We will do our best at providing a satisfying experience shopping with our small business. Currently, we are small enough to be able to handle automatically refunding  excessive shipping overages at time of shipping. Your interest and business with us has our most sincere thanks for the support!
