We have regional and Fairtrade yarns, needles, notions, accessories, and local food/gift items. Over 40 fiber artists and fiber farmers supply handwoven scarves, rugs, blankets, knitwear, felted items, pottery yarn bowls & mugs, and local roving and yarn. Stop in to take a look! We always have Gift Certificates and make-your-own Gift Baskets. If you’re touring the area, we are just south of Historic Deerfield and the Magic Wings Butterfly Conservatory.

The mission of Sheep & Shawl is to create a market for natural fiber yarns, promoting local and regional fiber farmers and fiber artists, and to create a local community of knitters and fiber artists.
I am so excited to be in this beautiful space within the vibrant Pioneer Valley, where “buy local” is a way of life. I hope you’ll visit my website again and be looking for updates!
