We're passionate about connecting you with local farms, natural fibers, shepherds, and designers who create beautiful, sustainable handknits.
Join us for a behind-the-scenes exploration of yarn and knitting at their most authentic. With must-knit projects and unforgettable stories, Farm & Fiber Knits invites you to see the craft world through fresh eyes.
From traditional Navajo-Churro wool to finewool fleeces prized by industry, sheep and yarn are inseparable from the Diné lifeway.
Inspired by wool’s natural colors, Amy Tyler interpreted the fossilized coral Petoskey stones as a modular throw.
If you want to get up close and personal with a flock of sheep, Meridian Jacobs Farm Club may be just what the shepherd ordered.
Merinos and other sheep were bred for centuries for bright-white fleece, but some shepherds are working to add color to their flocks.
Generally avoided by the large-scale wool mills, naturally colored wool is a treat that small-batch wool producers offer knitters.
Season 7, Episode 8: The knitwear designer and creative director on creativity, fiber arts, and why she’s not farming yarn.
Many of us take our knitting on vacation–it’s a great way to pass the time on a long flight or in the passenger seat on a road trip. But have you ever wanted to go one step further—take a vacation where knitting is the main event?
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a knitter on vacation must be in want of a yarn shop and other fiber-y fun.
Adding a knitting destination can make any trip a voyage to remember.
When you find yarn labeled simply “alpaca,” you can generally assume that the fiber comes from huacaya alpacas. But the less-familiar suri alpaca offers unique delights for handknits.
