Announcement    *** Please Note: We are open, but shipping times may be slow during the current crisis. I am shipping twice a week to follow local social-distancing requirements.

Crowing Hen Farm specializes in handspun yarn for weavers.

I am now a Canadian Ashford Dealer and can special order Ashford supplies, tools, fibre, and parts. Please contact me for details. I can only ship Ashford products within Canada.

I started spinning yarn for knitting, but when I learned to weave, I immediately wanted to know what it would be like to weave with my handspun. Although excellent for socks, my singles are spun with the loom in mind. Care is taken to make a consistent and strong yarn that creates a delightful fabric. Woven in plain weave, the twist in the yarn creates a gorgeous bias that gives the cloth the texture of twill.

I love spinning orders over 1 kilo, so I'm offering wholesale prices for large, custom orders. Contact me for details.

Shop members

  • Raven

    Owner, Spinster

    An over-opinionated misanthropic author, Raven spins yarn, weaves cloth, collaborates with sheep, wrangles llamas, hugs alpacas, weeds flax, and conspires with cotton on the family farm off the left coast of Canada. ​

    Ashford Wheels and Looms have been making high-quality fibre arts equipment since the 1930s. They specialize in natural materials and eco-friendly processes. I choose Ashford because I use their products in my own crafting and I adore their quality tools.
