About

Join us for a weekend of fiber-filled fun, enjoy the company of fellow fiber enthusiasts in Maine.

The Life of Wool Fiber Studio at Nezinscot Farm is located on the second floor above our store, cafe, and creamery.

It is a spacious 30 x 60’ open design studio that features wool yarns produced from our flock of over 100 sheep, Angora goats, Angora rabbits, and alpacas. The studio also houses a variety of working looms, spinning wheels, various other fiber-related equipment.

Our store and studio sit in the middle of our 300-acre third-generation organic dairy farm. While here, visitors are welcome to walk around the farm, join in the day-to-day chores on the farm, walk around the expansive gardens and enjoy the view of the river from comfy chairs on our front porch.

This weekend is an opportunity to learn and gain skills in weaving (four harness or rigid heddle), spinning, felting, natural and acid dyeing, crochet, and knitting. Other crafts available to try include vintage sock knitting, locker hooking, wet felting, and rug hooking.

Whether new to the craft or experienced, this weekend is an opportunity to meet fellow crafters for a weekend of relaxation on our working family farm. Experience everything that our farm has to offer; good food prepared in our cafe from ingredients grown and produced on our farm, all while being completely surrounded by nature and our farm animals.

Our retreat is designed to offer the three more popular crafts(Weaving, spinning, Knitting), however, during and throughout the retreat, participants are welcome to design and choose which craft and time they want to learn upon arrival on Friday check-in.
