At HipStrings, we strive to create yarn, fiber and tools that bring joy to your craft.  We carry our own line of Signature Blends of combed top that bring together fiber and color in new and interesting ways.  We offer hand dyed and small batch yarns featuring fibers perfectly suited to their purpose.  Our tools (spindles, control cards, needle gauges) bring together performance and design to enhance your craft.

Ten Mile Fiber Mill

We are a farm to fiber operation. Our small farm hosts a flock of fiber sheep including Finn, Cotswold, Cheviot, Merino, Shetland, Tunis,
Texel, Rambouillet and Teeswater. We use our Belfast Minimill equipment to process our fleeces on site. In addition we purchase some fiber from selected local farms to add to our mix. Alpaca is purchased from local operators. Some of our roving products add bamboo, rayon, nylon or silk. Any superwash yarns in our hand dyed selections are purchased from other mills as we do not do the superwash process. We dye our yarn on premises using a selection of natural dyes and commercial dyes. We pride ourselves on our small environmental footprint.

Dyed on a variety of yarn weights, they’re perfect for socks, hats, cowls, and everything in between. Also popular in our collection is an array of hand-painted sock blanks, speckled colorways, mini sets, and spinning fiber to meet your crafty desires.
