Vermont Sheep Farmers
Katie owns Cloverworks Farm in Irasburg, Vermont. Using wool from her own sheep at Cloverworks, she successfully developed a yarn business. In the process, she realized that many farmers have wool, but don’t have the knowledge, skills or time to transform it into yarn or find markets for it. Katie saw a way to bridge the gap between these farmers and the hand fibercraft market. So she created Bobolink Yarns, which purchases wool from farmers, processes and spins it into premium yarn at a local mill, hand dyes it in small batches, and supplies that yarn to local shops.
