This farm-to-fleece shop makes it's own line of small-batch, hand-dyed yarn -- Distelfink Fiber -- from 14 sheep on the farm that provide the raw material (on average 6 to 8 pounds of wool per sheep). After about a year of growing their fleece, the sheep are sheared, the fleece is then skirted at the farm, and then shipped to a mill for processing. Each pound of wool yields about 4 skeins of yarn which the owners then hand-dye.
In addition to their own yarns, the store also features other hand-dyed wool; knitting patterns; wool applique and punchneedle patterns, kits, supplies, and finished goods; Valdani threads; homemade wooden carvings; hand-made lip balms, lotion sticks, and soaps.
The shop also offers workshops and one-on-one classes in various fiber arts (wool applique, punchneedle) and hosts informational farm tours demonstrating the "farm to needle" journey that your yarn makes.
