About Us

In This Category

 

Brooks Farm Yarn has been in operation since 1988.  An idea of raising a few fiber producing animals for our own use soon grew and, at one time, a very large herd of mostly naturally colored Angora goats populated our small farm. 

 

Production of fiber exceeded our expectations and from that a  need was created to make use of a lot of fiber. What better way to do that than spinning yarn?  Everywhere we went, we were told that 100% kid mohair yarn was not possible but finally, someone said maybe, and we were on our way!

 

With Randall managing the animals and seeing to the spinning of the fiber and Sherry working full time as a nurse, weekends were taken up with improving the dye process and the quality of the yarn.  Spinning and dyeing had become a way of life.  What once was two shows a year slowly grew and time became a rare commodity.  Finally, in 2005, the other full time jobs dropped by the wayside and we were in full yarn production.  We did however discover that a small farm cannot raise enough fiber for a full time yarn business. 

 

Randall still manages the yarn production, designing new yarns and perfecting others, as well as re-skeining, building new racking systems and hauling all of it and us across country. Sherry is still dyeing yarn while also working with designers for new patterns and handling all the office work.  Dena manages the website, correspondence and helps out with shows when possible.  There is still more to do than time will allow but we enjoy the process and the ability to connect with our customers.

 

There have been changes in our yarns over the years and undoubtedly there will be others as we strive to improve and continue to offer new and exciting yarns and patterns for our customers.  What remains constant in our business is our desire to produce quality products and to offer outstanding customer service.  We appreciate you all and hope you will continue with us on this journey.
