Overview
More Info

This farm-to-fleece shop makes it's own line of small-batch, hand-dyed yarn -- Distelfink Fibers -- from 12 sheep on the farm that provide the raw material (on average 6 to 8 pounds of wool per sheep). After an outside shearer does his job, the owners further clean the wool and then send it to a mill to be processed. Each pound of wool yield 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 (also on display at American Artisan Gallery in downtown Carlisle); hand-made lip balms, lotion sticks, and soaps.

The shop also offers 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.
