About Us

We are a family owned and operated fiber mill. We take pride in our work and treat your fiber as if it were our own. In addition, we sell wool and alpaca roving ready for the hand spinner or for dyeing. We also offer dyed fiber for both the hand spinner and Felter. We have both wool and alpaca wet felted and needle felted pads for sale. To help increase the fiber community, we sell inexpensive knitting needles, drop spindles, niddy noddys, and looms, felting tools and demonstrate fiber arts in our tent. We also offer mill services to the local community and free transportation of fiber from fiber fest to our mill. You may also drop you fiber by appointment at our farm. Personal service is something we pride ourselves on, working with each customer on an individual basis to make a product they can use and be proud of. Please call us to discuss your fiber order. Leave a message on our phone if you do not get one of us in person. We do try and get back with you within a day.  (301-461-9338)

If you or anyone else receives an email claiming to be able to sell you a list of attendees of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, please ignore it as IT IS A SCAM. It has come to our attention that companies are emailing some of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival’s exhibitors and attendees, claiming to offer our attendee email list. This is a common occurrence with large conferences and trade shows in recent years.It is our policy to NEVER sell, rent, or share attendee contact information. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any email lists of Festival attendees. The Festival is not providing this list nor generating these messages. How did they get your email? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the @ sign).If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of Festival attendees, do not respond to it. By responding—even with a request to unsubscribe—you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again. ... See MoreSee Less

This little lost lamb kid's mitten was turned in to the Lost & Found and would like to find it's mate. There is also a handmade shawlette someone might be missing, along with the usual random assortment of items -- reading glasses, etc. -- and, no surprise, a folding umbrella and a pair of rubber boots. Message me or email if any of these sound like they might belong to you, or if there is something else you would like me to check for. #mdsw2022 #lostandfound ... See MoreSee Less
