Who is the Woolly Trout?

wools by Alaina trout

My name is Alaina Trout, but I’m known as the Woolly Trout!

In summer, I live in the beautiful northwoods of Michigan high above the Lake Michigan shoreline.  I spend the winters along the glorious Intercoastal waterway of east Florida.  I am surrounded by brilliant shades and bright colors of the sunset, waters and lush greenery.  I love color, and am able to incorporate these great surrounds into my wools.  I started as a rug hooker but soon the passion of dyeing has become almost as important to me as my rug hooking.  I love to experiment to try to create unique wools.  Every June I am the co-Director of the Manistee Rug School, located in Manistee, Michigan.  If you have time and might want to visit the rug school web site where you can find information about the school and also find some of my dye formulas posted. Visit www.manisteerugschool.blogspot.com or Like us on Facebook.

I use Pendelton, Dorr, and Woolrich wools.  I will dye something that just fits the bill for your special piece.  I will attempt to match a piece you already have but need more of or have wools available that you just might like.  Look over my store and I hope you will like it.
