We all know that there’s no substitute for being able to TOUCH the yarn and know how many of you enjoyed the shop at the fork in the road back in the day.
Right now, our small team on our small farm is rebuilding. We’re working hard to take good care of our flock of Merinos and bring you the yarn you love. That means our days are overfull, and we love every minute, but it doesn’t leave time for tours right now. (We’ve also got some close new neighbors whose privacy we need to respect, so we can’t accommodate order pick-ups at this time.)
So what’s a knitter to do?
Please note that all of these are heavily dependent on the local COVID situation:
