Announcement    We are old-fashioned craftspeople who live in the modern world. We believe in making quality products that last. We grow many of our own materials, including wood, Jacob Sheep wool, and dye herbs. Shawn and Radha make all the brooms, Jeanette does the spinning and weaving.

At this time, all brooms are custom made when ordered. Shawn and Radha tie their unique broom corn brooms by hand. The handles for the larger brooms come from hardwoods that are sustainably harvested by clearing out the undergrowth in the Ozark forests. We are happy to create custom brooms in your colors or based on your decor. We do all our own broom corn dyeing. Custom orders can take from 3 to 4 weeks.

Radha and Jen hand shear our sheep every year in March. We use sustainable, natural farming practices in managing our flocks and wood lot.

Our Jacob sheep and guardian llama grow wonderful fibers that we spin, wash, dye, weave, crochet and felt into yarns, shawls, handbags, hats, scarves, rugs, and toys. Visit our Havencroft Farm Facebook page or web site at Havencroftfarm.com if you want to know more about our farm and critters and crafts.
----------------------
Let us know if you have any special requests when you order. We are happy to ball your skeins of yarn, just convo us when you purchase a skein and let us know you'd like it in a center-pull ball.
------
Jen has been raising goats and sheep since 1979 and we have had prize-winning show flocks. We shear by hand, on a stand. It is a nice time to spend with each animal. We use natural methods of health care for our critters, including rotational grazing and weekly hands-on checks.
-------
We tie brooms, spin yarn, weave, make cheese, and crochet all the time. If you are looking for something in the way of fleece, fiber, yarn, just contact me. We might have it in the stash or being grown in the field.
-------
Ours is a smoke-free, pet-friendly workshop and home. We have pet dogs and helpful cats, so you may find some of their fibers mixed in with the wool and llama fluff.
-------
Your satisfaction is guaranteed with every purchase. Computer monitors and cameras do not always display an item accurately and fiber is a tactile thing. If you are not happy with your purchase from Havencroft Farm, just contact us to arrange a return and refund.

Havencroft Farm - quality handcrafted comfort from our Ozark homestead

I started Common Threads in 1987, when my daughter Radha was a year old. Now she's a huge part of the business and we've gone from traveling to do craft shows and Renaissance Faires to staying on the homestead most of the time. Havencroft Farm is our store, web page, and farm.

Our styles and products have changed over the years, but we still focus on quality, durable items that we make from start to finish.

Shawn, Radha and I raise our own sheep, Jersey cow, and diary goats for wool and milk. We care for our animals throughout their lives and generations. We shear, wash, card, spin, weave, knit and crochet their fleeces. We harvest wood from our land and carve it into many of the tools we use to work with the fibers we raise.

Radha is now a full-time broom maker, along with Shawn. They run their own broom making shop at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas. They have each won the National Champion Craft Broom Championship at the National Broom Corn Festival in Arcola, Illinois several times and been featured in magazine articles.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 29, 2022
Each one of our items is made by hand, one at a time. No two are alike, and we cannot duplicate any item. We can make something similar to an item, but never the same. Every year the critters grow a different fleece, due to differing weather, nutrition and their age. Natural dyes are always surprising in their results. When we commercial dye, we use the same brand of dye, but differing water temperatures, relative humidity or fiber will change the colors of the dye. Creating is always a fascinating process.

Computer monitors and cameras all capture and display colors differently.

We want you to be happy with any item you purchase from Havencroft Farm. If you aren't, for any reason, just let us know and we will be happy to arrange a return and refund or exchange.

We ship via US Postal service, usually via Priority Mail, with delivery confirmation. For any item listed in the store, we usually ship within 3 weeks of receiving payment as many items are custom made when ordered. Special orders will take time to make, when discussing the order, we'll let you know how long an item will take.

We welcome visits to our farm and studios. Shawn and Radha are resident broomsquires at the Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View, Arkansas.
