About Us

Fine fiber in exceptional hand dyed colors for over 35 years. We are a mother daughter team, starting a few years before Tess was born in 1986, on an ocean-front farm in Maine. Shortly after we sold the ewes for fleece and the hand dying journey began. We offer kits and yarns in exceptional colors at reasonable prices. We are fortunate to have top designers as well as exciting new designers sharing their creativity. The quality of our yarns lets you enjoy every aspect of creative playing- from the winding of the balls of soft luxurious yarn all the way through to the final pleasure of wearing your creations! We want you to be pleased with our yarns and will help you in any way we can to help insure your success. Enjoy!
