Long Island Yarn and Farm is our special guest on the Yarn Thing Podcast
Long Island Yarn & Farm is an amazing small business. I have been using their hand salve to keep my hands from drying out throughout the winter. It is perfect for those of us that work with our hands since you can put it directly on the ares that need help. Learn more about their salve, yarn and their farm.

About Long Island Yarn and Farm:
Long Island Yarn & Farm is the most diverse supplier of local raw fiber, roving and yarn on Long Island, utilizing fiber from their own farm as well as from others, all shorn by Founder, Tabbethia Haubold. They are committed to the well being of camelids and all other livestock. Long Island Yarn & Farm’s award winning llamas and fleeces speak for the quality of the fiber they have to offer for the spinner’s and knitter’s delight. Their product offerings include raw fiber, roving, hand spun and homespun yarns, hand made lanolin skincare, finished fiber products and hand-knit items.
Tabbethia resides in Yaphank, NY on a 17 acre fiber farm that is home to a herd of about 20 llamas, along with an alpaca, sheep, angora goats, angora rabbits and pot bellied pigs. With a BS in Animal Science and an original love affair with horses, Tabbethia began raising llamas in 1997 and then started showing in 2001 on the local, regional and national level. As an educator by nature and profession, she utilizes her animals for educational programming for both youth and adults in various venues. Tabbethia also has an extensive shearing business that involves over 1,000 animals. She travels from VT to GA and everywhere in between to shear llamas, alpacas, angora goats, and sheep.
Each skein of Long Island Yarn & Farm yarn is labeled with the following message from Tabbethia:
“Shearing is an intimate process between the animals and myself. My relationship to them is always one of patience and positive approach. Fiber, wool, and mohair are the by-products from the animals I work with. Long Island Yarn & Farm uses this fiber in the creation of our own yarns. These yarns put a face with the fiber, and through the hand knit garments they make, connect people to the animals we love.”
