As life long animal lovers, my husband and I dreamed up a business that would allow us to help animals, support environmentally friendly products, and allow us to express our artistic creativity. Blue Barn Fiber is the product of that dream.
I was an Environmental Science major in college, and I got the opportunity to delve deep into the textile and agriculture industry. I was taken aback by how terrible so many textiles are for the environment, and I was impressed by how truly eco-friendly wool is. This new love of wool opened up a whole new world for us, and we were hooked on all things fiber related.
Our business has grown to include a wide variety of eco-friendly and recycled fibers, as well as hand painted yarn, spinning wheels, and more. We are particularly fond of closed loop cellulose fibers such as Tencel, and SeaCell, and we were the first shop in the United States to offer Rose Pearl Fiber. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that the fiber that we offer in our shop is as eco friendly as possible, and we are constantly on the lookout for new and unique products.
Any of the fiber and yarn in our shop can be custom dyed , with the exception of glow in the dark fiber (made from recycled materials) and Stainless Steel, as it is pure metal fiber.
We hope to someday start our own fiber mill and animal sanctuary farm. With our passion for the environment, paired with animal welfare, we will put all of our effort into not only having cruelty free products, but also a self-sustaining farm that will help improve the earth.
