About Us

Greenwood Hill Farm is a family owned Merino Sheep Farm in rural Hubbardston Massachusetts. Tom and Andrea Colyer started their yarn business using the wool from their white and natural colored Merino sheep to create 4 natural colors (white, silver, slate and chocolate), and 2 weights (DK and Worsted) of yarn. Andrea has designed over 20 patterns and also sells Green Mountain Spinnery and Yankee Knitter patterns. Also for sale is combed top in white and natural colors which is the choice of discriminating spinners and felters. Unicorn fiber washing products, Wool Wax Cream and Greenwood Hill Farm kits are all available in the shop on the farm and on our website at greenwood hill farm.com.

A sample card of our yarn is available by calling the farm at (978) 928-5175 or e-mail . Send your mailing address and we will get one in the mail to you. We feel you can’t appreciate our 100% Merino Yarn unless you feel and see it.

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.
