This shop full of locally sourced hand-dyed yarns and fibers in Lancaster County is a quaint spot filled with lots of great threads and gives you with that warm fuzzy feeling we all crave. Upon entering the shop my daughter I were greeted by the owner, Donna, with a warm spirit and an obvious love for fiber arts. She told me all about the weaving and spinning classes she offers (note to self – must take lesson) and even showed us a bit of weaving on her beautiful loom.
The back room filled the hand died roving is absolutely delicious. The colors are rich, original, and I wanted to buy one of everything!
Looms and wheels of all shapes and sizes are always just an arms length away and freshly died fibers are soaking in tubs along the ground. We entered the yarn area full of fun and different yarns – almost all hand died – and lots of great variety and sparkle (which of course my little one loved).
We selected a lovely Lancaster County Rain yarn – a 420 yard wool with sparkle sport weight hand dyed yarn for $24. Donna was kind enough to spin it into a ball for us which was entertaining and educational.
I would highly recommend this shop to any fiber enthusiast. Make sure you leave enough time to soak in all the goodness the shop has to offer and to enjoy a chat with the owner. Now off to design a new original cowl pattern with the yarn I bought there for Bo Peep’s Bonnets! Tootaloo for now ❤ Bo Peep
