About Us

We are a small fiber farm and indie-dye studio & shop in Mount Airy, Maryland. We produce many specialty, hand dyed, and farm grown yarns, as well as roving, fleece, kits, patterns, and fibery finished goods.

Karen is the dye artist, and everything fiber has gone through her hands at least once before it gets to you. She does all the skirting, washing, dyeing, and some carding, spinning too. The whole family participates in the farming and our shows and festivals.

Primarily we raise Angora & Colored Angora Goats and breed for ultra fine mohair. On our farm you might also see a llama, alpaca, rare breed chickens and a few other beloved critters.

Next Sunday, as part of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival Winterfest, we are pleased to offer a free keynote lecture entitled "The Cultural History of Natural Dyes" with Pat Brodowski. Mankind has desired colorful textiles for thousands of years. Color was highly valued and dye materials and techniques were often held secret. Pat shares the history from a European perspective: listen to the story of a secret 20 step formula for red – stolen by memorization; of the newest purple transported in the ballast of pirate ships; of the brilliant orange and magenta face paints taken by Spanish invaders, and of the young woman who created the indigo plantations of South Carolina. Find out which colors were common or royal, foraged or treasured. Your view of historic fashion will be changed forever. Pat's popular natural dyes workshops have been presented at Monticello, Montpelier, Common Ground on the Hill, and to local fiber arts groups. She is fascinated with the historic perspective on color in textiles and with all things botanical. Pat loves to share her knowledge of these things with others. This is a free virtual event.
