Skein Train LLC
An On-the-Farm, Internet & Mobile Yarn Shop


Skein Train's Story

Skein Train's home base is in the Four Corners area of New Mexico. We have an "on the farm" shop, a trailer which we take to small towns that do not have a yarn shop and our internet catalog. We also attend many of the fiber arts festivals, wool festivals and arts & crafts shows within a reasonable driving distance of La Plata, New Mexico. Please stop by and see us at these festivals, there is nothing that compares to actually getting to touch the fibers you are thinking of purchasing. Our online store is open 24/7 for your shopping pleasure.

We have ready-to-spin fibers, handspun & commercial yarns, kits, & finished products. Knitting and crochet accessories and patterns. We are still in the process of building our inventory, so if there is something you are looking for and you don't see it, please email us and we will try to locate and add it to our inventory. Email Skein Train.

We very pleased to be carrying Brown Sheep Company yarns. These incredible USA yarns are beautiful, economical and great for weaving, knitting, crochet and needle arts. Be sure to check out their great handpainted sock yarn.

We have recently added Blue Heron Yarns' quality unique handpainted yarns.  Their offerings include Eqyptian Cotton, Silk/Merino, Rayon, Metallic Rayon, Rayon Chenille and Sock Yarn. 

We always have a limited supply of handspun yarns on hand also.

Our current spinning fibers are from our own ranches and other small producers. Current fibers include California Red Sheep rovings, CVM Rovings, CVM/Rambouillet Rovings, Rambouillet Top, Cormo Top, Coopworth Top, Mulberry silk, hemp and flax. Please visit us often as we will be adding new products frequently.
