StorySkein Train's home base is in the Four Corners area of New
Mexico. We have an "Yarn and Farm"
store, a trailer which we take to small towns that do not
have a yarn shop and our internet
catalog. We used to attend many of the fiber arts festivals, wool
festivals and arts & crafts shows within a reasonable driving distance of La Plata, New
Mexico, however, the passing of my husband and the illness of Sandy's husband have forced
us to become the farm caretakers and give up the festivals. Our online store is open 24/7 for your shopping
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. We have recently added farm and ranch products to our store.Email Skein Train.
