Announcement    Spring sheep and wool festivals in our region have been cancelled due to covid - 19.
We are keeping our Etsy shop open and shipping orders. There may be delays with shipments going to Europe. To all our customers - Thank you for your support, stay healthy and be safe.

We have added some more exciting fibers to our line up of combed tops. Recent additions include 100% humanely harvested mink fiber. We have also been able to bring back the 80/20 dyed merino / silk blends originally from Ashland Bay. Visit the Exotic & Undyed section to see the cashmere, yak, camel, and custom blends. Perfect gifts for the fiberista!

We hope you enjoy exploring our shop for a variety of fiber offerings we have available for your spinning, knitting and felting pleasure. We stock the complete line of solid and multi-colored Merino combed top originally from Ashland Bay and now handled by Foxglove Fiberarts Supply. We order from them on a regular basis in order to keep our inventory well stocked. Let us know if you need a large quantity of a particular color and we can call in an order.

We do our best to accurately represent the color but there are differences between monitors and we find some colors just seem to give us problems. If there are Ashland Bay fibers you are interested in but are concerned about the exact color, please don't hesitate to contact the shop. We will be happy to mail you a sample. The listings for dyed merino are in amounts of 4 ounces but we will gladly set up a custom reserve listing for other amounts in the colors of your choice.

Peg is still creating new skeins of luxurious handspun angora so check back often to see the latest listings. In addition to classic white and the soft natural colors, we will have a number of dyed skeins as well.

All the 100% angora 3 ply yarns are priced by weight, $16.00 / oz. for the undyed angora and $17.00 / oz. for the dyed. Being handspun, yardage /oz. will vary but they will tend to be in the DK to light worsted weight category.

This collective shop has been created by Peg Critser and Jan Lashua. We are fiber enthusiasts working together to provide handspinners and knitters beautiful hand dyed rovings, exotic blended batts and handspun yarns. We also offer needle felting supplies and blending fibers for your craft endeavors.

Fiber has drawn us together and we have become "Friends in Fiber" and so have adopted that as the name for our shop.

Thank you for visiting!

On Etsy since 2010

No Fiber Left Behind!!

Jan and Peg are sometimes referred to as "The Spin Free or Dye Girls." Our tagline is a play on the words of the New Hampshire State motto "Live Free or Die." For most of our products, Peg is the spinner and needle felter while Jan focuses on the dyeing.
Peg's farm is home to llamas, sheep and angora rabbits. She uses their fiber as well as yak, bison, qiviut, cashmere, camelid and silk to create carded batts and handspun yarn.
Peg specializes in the creation of fine lace-weight yarns and enjoys knitting lace shawls in the Orenburg style. She also provides custom spinning for pet owners who save the brushed fiber from their dogs and cats.

Jan is a retired teacher whose love of fiber has grown under the mentorship of Peg and she especially enjoys creating dyed rovings. blended batts as well as creating felted items such as pins, jewelry and a variety of knitting/spinning accessories.
