Avalon Springs Farm - We’re a small fiber farm and indie dye studio in MD. Karen, is the producer and artist; we do the farming as a family.

Fully Spun – I believe that through our craft we can create items that share a piece of who we are with a loved one or show some of our personality off to the world. Here at Fully Spun, I hand-dye wool roving. I then ship it to a mill, and wait anxiously for it to be returned to me as beautiful yarn with a wonderful marled effect. Every strand has multiple colors and the colors fade into each other in a variety of color gradients. This yarn is perfect and intended for use by all fiber artists. I will have some Fibernate exclusive hand-dyed roving available at the show for those who would like to put their own spin on it!
