Cranberry ​Cre​​ek​ Fibers

Welcome to Cranberry Creek Fibers! 

A love of Leicester Longwool sheep, wonderful mentors of shepherds & fiber artists, & the need to craft things in beauty led to the evolution of Cranberry Creek Fibers. Here you will find fibers of rare sheep breeds - raw fleece, roving, yarns & dryer balls. Baskets geared to the needs of fiber artists & shepherds, & the ever-popular cotton tea towels, are all handwoven here at the homestead in North Carolina. It's been a long journey, but wonderful in so many ways - the people, experiencing being a shepherd, & naturally, using such beautiful fibers! May these heritage fibers & crafts become a memorable part of your fiber journey as well, to be enjoyed for many years to come!

New Initiative for Fiber Artists!

To encourage the use of rare breed fibers, the Livestock Conservancy created the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em Initiative. Fiber artists register with the program & use wool from breeds on the Conservation Priority List. Use of these fibers encourage shepherds to continue to raise these animals & ensure their presence for future generations. In keeping with this initiative, Cranberry Creek Fibers teams with other local shepherds to provide rare breed fibers as available. Register with the Conservancy to receive your passport which you'll fill with stickers when you make a purchase from the registered fiber provider. Details are provided at:
