SPA Spotlight: Good Karma Farm

SPA Spotlight: Good Karma Farm

Good Karma Farm began in 2003 in Kingfield Maine with 3 pregnant alpacas and a llama.  Since then we've moved to Belfast (on the coast),  added a spinning mill, a flock of registered Icelandic sheep, and an ever watchful pet duck named Stella.

All of our yarn is spun by us on our farm using our own fiber or fiber from other Maine and
New England farms.  Currently we make a 60/40% wool/alpaca blend in a 2 ply worsted weight and a 3 ply sport weight.  We also make a 100% wool sock weight yarn which we handpaint.

On special occasions (SPA!) we convert the carder over for making big (8-10oz) luscious batts in fantastical colors.  The batts are each one of a kind and are made with some combination of wool, alpaca and usually some silk and recycled sari silk thrown in.  A ton of fun to spin.

We also make Carrabassett Soap,  an olive oil based, all natural moisturizing bar soap.
