Starcroft's new web store is live! Check out our new logo designed by Holly McBride.  

On Our Story page we share with you the history of Nash Island Wool and the making of Nash Island Yarns. 

On our Shop page you can fill your cart with Nash Island TIDE yarn...

and Nash Island FELTING WOOL for your holiday knitting and felting projects. 

With the website up and running and the house building in it's finishing stages I am looking forward to getting back to the mill and working on the 2015 clip after the holidays. First up is a batch of Nash Island FOG. I'll let you know as soon as it's ready!

Through the Year with Through the Loops

I've been terribly remiss with sharing my project 'Through the Year with Through the Loops'. Knitting these shawls has been my tiny oasis amidst the hustle of summer house construction and the bustle of fall gardening and winter prep. I'm ready for deep snow and long dark quiet nights filled with more Through the Loops shawl knitting.
