The MOUNTAIN FIBER FOLK COOPERATIVE is all about PRODUCTS MADE IN VERMONT!
We have a new locally grown lace-weight alpaca/cormo wool blend yarn to knit up that lace shawl you've always wanted. Our members have really gone out for color this year! Pastel pink, brilliant blues and the best reds. All of the rainbow colors can be found. Our handspun yarn is second to none, truly "candy" for the discriminating knitter/weaver.
Our friendly members staff the shop five days a week and are always delighted to provide inspiration and guidance or simply “celebrate” with you your newest fiber arts project.
Whatever fiber hopes and dreams you entertain, we invite you to stop in, consider the possibilities and gather up some truly awesome materials. We encourage you to live in the moment, whether you are starting a large project or a small one. Take some time to enjoy the creative process! It’s good for you!
