Karen (in the woods somewhere in Wisconsin) makes rugs, socks, scarves, and hats using old world traditional methods. She also spins her own wool (and offers some of it for sale).

Rosetung is a self-described "artist-crafter-designer" who took the names of the two grandmothers this Etsy shop owner never knew. A browse through the shop proves the truth, and the understatement, of that description. Rosetung's kritted and crocheted creations exude style and artistic expression. And the preference for natural fibers--wool, silk, cotton--makes them almost precious.
Victoria Collins went off the grid in 1984. She packed up and headed for a moutain top in New Hampshire. Then she invested in sheep and set about living at one with nature, respecting the land and, in her own unique way, "contributing to feed and clothe America." Victoria's Maple Winds Farm, in Groton, New Hampshire, has run on wind and solar power for over 25 years, but modern satellite internet service brings her handiwork down off the mountain top and directly into our homes. I was searching for good handmade wool socks. What I found at Maple Winds Farm is good handmade wool socks woven from hand spun yarn made with wool from sheep in Victoria's small herd on the mountain.
