Woolociraptor™ Handspun Yarn

Here’s the page for my non-dog-fur handspun yarns!

For many Woolociraptor™ yarns, I start from scratch and process all fibers by hand, from purchased raw-and-sorted fleeces. I wash, dry, card, spin, ply, skein, set the twist/finish, measure, and re-skein them with enthusiasm! I do every step to turn this into yarn besides house the animals, shear them, and skirt/sort the fleeces.

Quill ‘r Inkstinct: Art and Oddments by Jason Syverson

Welcome to my site! I’m Jason Rutledge Syverson, a Minnesota-grown artist residing in Minneapolis.  Herein lies my intricate art, realistic pet drawings, stained-glass style portraits, handspun yarn, and bespoke pet fur yarns.

On the 2D art front, I favor black and white mediums such as ink, charcoal, and graphite. Figures feature prominently in my visual art, and I have a penchant for dorky puns, morbidity, and the bizarre. In my portrait work, I capture the likeness and detail of each animal I draw in an elegant charcoal piece.

I’ve been a handspinner for 12 years, and I specialize in custom-spinning dog fur yarns (known as chiengora). My yarns are toasty and fluffy, and don’t smell like wet dog!
