About

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.
