Vermont Sheep Farmers
Katie and Matt own Cloverworks Farm in Irasburg, Vermont. Using wool from their own sheep at Cloverworks, they successfully developed a yarn business. In the process, they 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 and Matt saw a way to bridge the gap between these farmers and the hand fibercraft market. So they 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.
