Description

Orchard View Lincoln Longwool yarn comes from a local flock in Bergen, NY. The wool is processed and spun in New York by a woman-owned fiber mill. This rustic-yet-soft, hard-wearing yarn is perfect for sturdy sweaters, mittens and accessories that will last for years to come.

Meet the shepherd:

Emmaline provides the passion behind Orchard View Farm. With the help of her dad, they raise purebred Lincoln Longwool sheep for the purpose of breed preservation, wool production, and pure enjoyment.

When she isn't working as agronomist (her real job), she can be found in the barn with her flock or in the living room skirting fleeces.

Care

Hand wash cold, dry flat.

FREE Yarn Winding

Many of our yarns are sold in hanks rather than balls and need to be wound into a "cake" before using. If you'd like us to do this for you, please add the Ball Winding Service to your order of yarn! (Please note: wound yarn can not be returned.)

"I'm so excited to finally find my perfect local yarn store. They carry such an amazing range of yarns, from locally sourced to small batch sheep to skein to naturally dyed. I've been twice (so far!) and I'm always greeted so nicely. It doesn't feel clique-y or snobby as some shops do. Their range is really amazing and so far I've gotten sweater yarn and yarn for 2 different shawls here. Dawn is great with color advice too. Highly reccomend!" - Google Review
"I couldn't leave this shop a high enough score. 10000/10. The instant I walked in, I was given a warm greeting and was immediately helped. I went in for sock yarn but, was overwhelmed by all the amazing local yarn. I love that they have a direct relationship with their yarn artisans. She even stayed a few minutes past closing when I was having problems picking just one skein. Never felt rushed or like she wanted me gone. She took the time to make sure I was getting exactly the righ.t product and even put my skein into a cake That's an amazing service that I've never been offered before. I can't say enough good things about this place. Ill definitely be making the trip there more often!" - Google Review
