About Us

The Spinning Loft is the go-to source for breed-specific fiber.

We stock raw fleece and processed roving and top from a wide variety of breeds and we normally have more than 50 distinct breeds in stock at any time. Here at The Spinning Loft we focus on conservation and heritage breeds from around the world, and work with shepherds to give them an outlet for their wool, thus helping them preserve their flocks and their way of life.

Wool of every type, from fine wool to multi-coated, is available for spinning. We also stock scour, processing tools, spindles, wheels, and looms to take your project from raw fleece to finished heirloom. We are indeed a one stop shop for all things wooly!

Festival Exclusive

Cindy’s new yoked sweater, Upsweep, will be available for purchase as a pattern and a kit with 15% off yarn when purchased as a kit.

About Us

Subito Farm Designs is a mother daughter design team focused on original knitting patterns, hand-dyed US sourced yarn, and fiber jewelry. Cindy and Sarah are pattern designers and yarn dyers, while Meaghan is our needle felter, jewelry designer, photographer, and social media guru. We are based in Massachusetts and like to take our inspiration from local sources as well as classical references, in fact, that is where our name came from – all three of Cindy’s daughters took three years of classical Latin and our barn was built quickly so we decided to call ourselves Subito, meaning quickly or at once, Farm Designs.
