Whidbey Isle Yarns

On tranquil Whidbey Island, Washington, we raise our own alpacas and angora bunnies, shear their fleeces, then gently transform the fiber into soft, luxurious handspun yarns. We also handknit beautiful scarves and needle felt gorgeous hats (childrens and adults) from alpaca, mohair and merino fibers. The children participate in 4-H with their alpacas, and have won top state honors for their animals and the fleeces.

We do not send out our alpaca fleeces to a mill! From drumcarding on Fricke Finest at home to gently washing the fiber with French olive oil soap or Brown's lamb gentle wash (no additives), to dying at home, to handspinning in our own studio, this is an environmentally friendly, totally homegrown fiber family business!

We now have a quaint retail storefront, focusing on sustainability. We carry own fibers and those from other local farms, our own handspun and eco hand dyed yarns. We teach classes too!

We were voted 2nd Greenest Business on Whidbey Island. :)
