Ashley Markus - Off The Hooks


GREEN BUSINESS OF THE WEEK!!

Off The Hooks sells a variety of items such as crocheted and knit accessories, yarn and eco friendly goodies!

Shop owner Ashley spins her own yarn, often from local producers and farms. She upcycles and reclaims a lot of yarns for many of her items. She takes unwanted fabrics and turns them into "fabric yarns". She hand dyes her fibers and yarns with non-toxic dyes. She also uses minimal packaging when shipping her product, and loves to reuse packing materials. Not only is this shop eco-friendly, but it supports the local economy!!

Off the Hooks is participating in the YART SALE on Etsy sponsored by Team ESST. Art + Yard Sale = Yart! Check out her YART SALE section in her store!
