What Is String Exchange?
We started String Exchange as an attempt to quench the thirst of fiber and yarn enthusiasts in the Wichita area. We may not quench your thirst, but we can keep you regularly hydrated!
Denise Renee of Filament Fiber Arts and Chauntel Ensey of Firebrunette Knits bring you quarterly special offers of yarn and fiber from amazing companies. We also provide pattern suggestions for each offering. This will give us all a chance to sample different talent, breeds, twist, and colorways.
Order the yarn, fiber, and patterns online or with one of us and we will deliver your order at our fiber meet up groups. We are not offering shipping at this time.
You will receive a 5% discount off retail.
Sales tax is included and there is no shipping charge.
The savings will be over a 10% discount in the end!

Known for her fiber prep and dyeing, she is acclaimed by spinners across the country as well as internationally for her fiber samples and innovative fiber club. The Spunky Eclectic shop is focused on spinning and weaving featuring a wide selection of wheels, spindles, looms, fibers, and handpainted yarns as well as instruction; everything a weaver and spinner needs to get going and keep going.
Targhee: Notes from The Fleece and Fiber Sourcebook
The Targhee sheep was born of practicality. In 1926, USDA researchers bred Rambouillet rams with Corriedale and Lincoln/Rambouillet eyes and back crossing the offspring with each other. They did this to make a dual purpose sheep, good for meat and fleece.This resulted in a fairly long wool that is fine with loft and elasticity, great for “making soft, cozy, resilient textiles that feel indulgent, yet wear well. Using a light touch in spinning will help keep the fibers flowing and Targhee also felts well.
