my love of knitting and all things fiber blossomed 7 years ago when i decided to open my own yarn shop and i have met the most amazing, wonderful folks. i added another dimension to my love of fiber, as i now dye my own yarns and fibers. i’m an avid knitter and felter and dabble in spinning and weaving when time allows, as i have a 70-acre farm and raise sheep, goats, cattle, chickens and bees.

Spencer Hill Naturally Dyed Yarn

Spencer Hill Naturally Dyed Yarn is a RETURNING vendor!

Spencer Hill Naturally Dyed Yarn believes that creative decisions can make a difference to more than just the creator. We strive to make the idea of “shopping small” have real meaning by sourcing as much yarn as possible from small farms, and providing an outlet for the diverse breeds of sheep they raise. With this, we have more choices as creators while supporting the small farms that are the backbone of American agriculture. Natural dyes and small batches of these and other fiber blends will bring that extra-special “something” to every project, and give you the satisfaction of knowing you’ve done your part to keep small farms thriving.

Each hat is wet felted out of 3 to 4 layers of super fine, soft Merino wool which resists rain and keeps the wearer warm. Additionally, the hats are designed to be flattering and add more whimsy to grownups’ lives. Hat styles include cloches, fedoras, berets, gnome hats and other sculptural headgear.
