Located in the woods of Downeast Maine, Starcroft Fiber Mill is a mother/daughter yarn studio. We work with our good friends the Wakemans tending the sheep throughout the year. In early summer, we join them to help shear the sheep. If the weather cooperates, and the sheep are dry, we gather as day breaks for a boat ride to the island, where we round up the flock, and our three local women shearers get to work. While they shear the flock, we skirt through the fleeces removing bits of brambles and seaweed, sort them into grades, and bundle them into large burlap sacks. All of the lambs fleeces are used exclusively in our Nash Island LAMB yarn, while the soft ewe fleeces go into our Nash Island LIGHT, MUCKLEMARL, and TIDE yarns. The longest, softest fleeces are wrapped in sheets and reserved for hand spinners. After a hard day’s work filled with laughter and good food, the sacks of newly shorn fleeces are hauled in lobster boats to the mainland.

Our tops & top blends are made here in Maine and our yarns are made at one of several American mills. We know where all the fiber we work with came from, that the animals were treated ethically and that the fibers were produced sustainably. Let us know if you'd like to chat earlier or later, so we can set up a time.

If the weather cooperates, and the sheep are dry, we gather as day breaks for a boat ride to the island, where we round up the flock, and our three local women shearers get to work. While they shear the flock, we skirt through the fleeces removing bits of brambles and seaweed, sort them into grades, and bundle them into large burlap sacks. All of the lambs fleeces are used exclusively in our Nash Island LAMB yarn, while the soft ewe fleeces go into our Nash Island LIGHT, MUCKLEMARL, and TIDE yarns. The longest, softest fleeces are wrapped in sheets and reserved for hand spinners. After a hard day’s work filled with laughter and good food, the sacks of newly shorn fleeces are hauled in lobster boats to the mainland.
