CRAFTS – fiber arts

Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 crisis, we are not displaying any wearable fiber arts at the shop that you would usually try on. We only have baby items to choose (not try on an infant), handwoven towels, bags, socks, and such that you won’t need to handle.

We carry local and regional crafts – mostly fiber arts (wearable scarves, shawls, hats and homewares like blankets, table runners, and hot pads) plus yarns from local farms or hand-dyed by local artists.  You’ll also find some interesting gift basket items from notecards to fiber jewelry.

Potential consignment vendors can now download the contract and inventory form from this page. Sheep&ShawlConsignmentContract Sheep&ShawlConsignorInventoryForm

Here are some of the artists we are currently featuring:


Please see the YARNS page for this information.

  3. Do you carry Debbie Bliss yarns. Specifically, Paloma? I know it’s one of her older yarns but would like to use it if possible. Many thanks, Barbara Volker
