A few years back, Cranberry Creek Fibers relocated from Carroll County, Maryland, to carve out a small farm in North Carolina. We still maintain strong ties to the Maryland area.
Though we recently dispersed the flock, we have limited amounts of Leicester Longwool fleeces, which consist of curly locks with a staple length of 5" or more. This longwool spews a high luster that gives jewel-tone hues when dyed.
Finished fibers include hand-spun and mill-spun yarns in natural and hand-dyed colors, core-spun yarn, roving, quilt batting in limited amounts, core-spun wool rugs, and dryer balls.
Woven here at our homestead, we also offer cotton & organic cotlin (cotton/linen blend) tea towels inspired by age-old designs, and reed baskets handmade with the needs of fiber artists in mind.
