FiberThyme's Shop Announcement

Incredibly soft home grown Maine fiber for knitters, spinners, weavers and felt artists.

By supporting A Wrinkle In Thyme Farm, you support women in small-scale, sustainable agriculture.

Our sheep are bred for their soft fiber, and the barn is full of happy ewes growing more wool for you. Our flock includes Romney crosses, Finn crosses, and some Border Leicester and Corriedale too. We invite you to visit our farm when you are in the area (just call ahead), and to see what is happening here visit our website at www.awrinkleinthymefarm.com or find us on Facebook.

Our farm is named A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm using the concept of tesseract (time travel) from the book by Madeline L'Engle. At A Wrinkle in Thyme Farm we like to do things the old-fashioned way when we can. For example, we use a draft horse for collecting sap for maple syrup, we sometimes dye wool with plants from the farm, and we hand spin for pleasure and family gifts.

We feature farmspun (not handspun) yarns, made with fiber from our own animals. We shear the animals, wash and dye and sometimes card the fiber. Our yarn is 100% wool or a blend including 20% local angora. Each 200 yard skein of yarn is tagged with an image of the animal that grew it.

We offer Fiber CSA shares, Thyme Tile patterns for needle felting, needle felting supplies, roving for spinning, yarn, and much more. Workshops at the farm include dyeing with plants, felting landscapes, and fun dyeing techniques using acid dyes.
