Fiber Artist Spotlight

Handspun Yarn in Aquamarine and Orange

We thought you would enjoy a peek at this beautiful Knox Farm Fiber art yarn which includes little Mister 1244's curly, white locks.

Here is a little bit about Knox Farm Fiber in Judith's own words -
"KnoxFarmFiber began in 2001 as a cooperative effort to promote the presence of fiber animals--sheep, llamas and Angora goats who lived at Knox Farm State Park in East Aurora NY. Various volunteers--children, families, park workers, spinners, knitters, weavers--have supported activities such as sheep shearing, fiber processing, fiber classes, natural dyeing classes using Park plant materials, an on-site Gift Shop, spinning demonstrations, and--since 2005--an annual regional Fiber Festival. All proceeds were shared with the animal care fund.
Then in December of 2010 the Park closed for budgetary and other reasons. The animals were adopted into private farms.
KnoxFarmFiber is now owned by me--Judith--a yarn-maker. I still have several seasons of fiber from the Park animals to spin and dye. I also spin the wool from sheep with names who live locally or further whose care is loving and whose care is organic. I hope you enjoy working with this yarn."

We really enjoy seeing what our customers produce with our wool.  Thank you, Judith, for sharing your beautiful work with us!

And, thank you all so much for your kind and thoughtful words on the loss of our girl, Raven.  It really means a lot to us.
