Feederbrook is known for the 2 ply DK yarn line called “Entropy”. Entropy is designed to mimic the look of a hand spun yarn. Dyed prior to spinning, this 2 ply Barber Pole has subtle colour shifts that make it a unique gradient perfect for any knit, crochet, or even woven project.
Located in northern Baltimore County, Maryland Feederbrook Farm was bought in 1970 by Jan and Michael Van Bibber as a fixer-upper. They worked tirelessly to bring back many components of the farm to its formal glory such as the main farmhouse, corn crib, and barn. During the 70’s and 80’s they ran a small cattle farming operation, but found that was not quite what they wanted to do. Sheep didn’t come onto the farm until the mid 90’s when the tenants brought them on. After taking over the sheep operation from the tenants, there was a long journey learning about sheep care and fibre processing. Feederbrook incorporated in 2009 after putting a business plan together that would make the farm a sustainable and viable farming operation providing income and support to future generations of family farmers. Today Jan Van Bibber and Lisa Westra work together collaborating on programs, products, and projects to make Feederbrook a destination for fibre and yarn enthusiasts alike.
