American Scenic, From Farm to Yarn

June 8, 2017
AmericanScenicFeature

Fiber Designer and Founder of Long Island Yarn & Farm (formally Long Island Livestock Co.)  Tabbethia Haubold leaves an impression on you, just like her yarn does. After meeting her two years ago we couldn't stop thinking about what we could make together. After many inspirational conversations and iterations we're happy to release an exclusive, limited edition yarn, American Scenic. We're so excited about this luxurious, Made-in-the-U.S.A yarn that is as beautiful as it is unique.


About the yarn.

This is our first collaboration with a fiber designer and we're happy it's ready to share with you. The yarn line is made in artisan small batches by a family-run mill. It's a worsted weight, soft blend of 50% US alpaca, 30% US merino and 20% silk. We’re releasing four beautiful color options and two complementary patterns, the Long Island Cowl and the East Bethel Cap.

American Scenic has a limited quantity and is first come first serve, once it's gone it's gone.

Ask your local yarn store if they have it.

Company connections.

Tabbethia and Blue Sky Fibers founder, Linda Niemeyer connected about their similar pasts and reasons for getting into the yarn business. Both companies grew from a love of animals and had their own fiber farm. That passion evolved to making beautiful, sustainable yarn with a knack for color and beautiful twists. These unique beginnings in yarn have kept them both focused on natural fibers and gives them a deep understanding of how yarn works.

Tabbethia knows fiber.

She's a professional shearer and has been working with animals since 1996. In under 4 months she shears approximately 1,000 animals from Vermont to Georgia. Tabbethia lives on a 17 acre farm on Long Island, which is the picture perfect dream for fiber and animal enthusiasts. For fiber animals she has llamas, alpacas, various sheep, angora goats and angora rabbits. But she also has some other sweet animals roaming around, like her chickens, cats, two pot-bellied pigs, and dog.
