Weaving, Spinning, & Soap: Block Island Made
While North Light Fibers started out with a bend to knitting, weaving has become a major passion and focus for us. In addition to having a large floor loom here in the store along with a triangle loom, Paige, Karyn, Laura and Sven all have looms in their houses - and weave we do!
We are also a Schacht dealer and sell many looms throughout the year. Classes in rigid heddle weaving are offered every week and through the winter. While many of our yarns are in the sport or fingering weights for knitters, we also put all of our yarns on cones that are perfect for weavers. Most recently, we introduced the Forever line of weaving yarns that are 80% alpaca and 20% bamboo - perfect for warp or weft.
Most importantly, our colors are very unique, offering a special palette for your weaving pleasure. Rovings for spinners are a true pleasure. We blend many different exotic fibers to create special and unique rovings from alpaca and bamboo to alpaca and merino or yak, silk and buffalo. Hand spinners love our alpaca rovings, wool rovings, and other exotic fiber rovings for making that very special yarn. We also carry a great selection of drop spindles made with fine Italian resin and even some pieces that showcase the beauty of Murano glass. Plus, everyone loves our felted soaps!
