Distelfink Fiber Co. is a mother-daughter fiber company that was established after starting a small flock of Romney/Border Leicester sheep in 2013. My mom and I started hand-dyeing our own yarns when we wanted to bring to life some of our favorite colors on SW Merino and mill-spun yarn from our flock.
Both of us were born and raised in Pennsylvania and spent the majority of our lives surrounded by Pennsylvania Dutch culture, having a large influence from extended family and the community. Through my Mom, I grew to appreciate the simple beauty in fraktur art and found great appreciation for what the Distelfink represents. We hope you enjoy our product as much as we enjoy creating it!
