About Us

I grew up appreciating the value of handmade things. They were made of natural ingredients, filled a need, were built to last, and contained large amounts of creativity, inspiration, care and love. In a world that now seems mass – produced, disposable, and sterile I have longed to return those simpler and more fulfilling times. I began exploring the creation of my own yarns by working with my partners at Mulberry Hill Farm in Carlisle PA. They are incredibly hard-working and reliable and I would know; they are my parents. Sean (aka Dad) looks after the farm, our flock and is responsible for 70% of my home renovations. Coleen (aka Mom) is a fellow dyer, my travel partner and the most creative lady I know.

We hand-dye vibrant and beautiful colors on super-wash merino yarn, offering a variety of bases and weights. My pride and joy is our farm-raised yarn, coming from our flock that live at Mulberry Hill Farm (Mom & Dad’s house). We raise Romney/Border Leicester sheep.
