About Us

Nistock Farms is located in the southern tier of NY state. We are just a few years from being a century farm! We fully transitioned from dairy to sheep in 2000 and continue to explore ways to showcase the versatility of wool by offering a wide variety of products. Our flock consists of about 125 registered Cotswolds and natural colored crossbreds of several breeds which give us a great range of fiber types to work with.

Nistock Farms is pleased to be an official Cotswold fiber provider in The Livestock Conservancy’s “Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em” program. We have passport stickers ready to go with your Cotswold purchase – please let us know if you need one.

Our flock provides gorgeous raw fleeces, but if raw isn’t your ‘thing’ we also make our wool into roving, knitting yarn, rug yarn, gigantic core spun yarns, spinning batts, quilting/felting batts and drop spindle kits to learn hand spinning. We have silk in many forms for your spinning, felting and blending needs and also angelina and firestar in a range of colors. We have also designed our own line of tools for the fiber artist. Digital skein winders, our 4-bobbin lazy kate – The Quad Kate – blending boards, and frames for rug hooking, rug punching and punch needle embroidery are all carefully crafted here one at a time. You can pay more but you won’t buy better!

If you need supportive materials we have books and magazines, moth repellent essential oils, and Unicorn fiber care products. We carry all sizes of Oxford punch needles, UltraPunch punch needles for punch needle embroidery and foundation cloth for both crafts.

If you need something and don’t see it here, please ask!
