We are proud to be the first to bring The Farmer's Daughter Fibers to our Connecticut friends...
Rich Native American roots, traditions, strength, and family ways drive us. It embodies all aspects of what we do. We are thankful for the opportunity to share with you our culture, heritage, and story. Thank you for being a part of it!
We adore this yarn in Stars Hollow, yet find it difficult to capture its beauty in photos or words. The Farmer's Daughter herself, Candice English (founder and head dyer) says it best...
“Moon Sisters is a celebration of our celestial anchor, the light when all else is dark, and the force that ties all women together, making us sisters. As we searched for the right colorways and bases for Moon Sisters, we quickly realized we were missing that…well… sparkle.
“This blend of Merino (70%), Nylon (20%), and Bronze Stellina (5%) is the perfect way for us to represent our vision. Our unique earthy tones combined with just the right amount of classy bronze sparkle leave even the non-glitter fans out there craving some. The fiber is soft and cushy with enough strength for socks, drape for shawls, and definition for colorwork yokes. An all around special yarn!”

Diversity and Inclusion Statement
As a Women and Indian American owned and operated company, culture is the essence of Farmer’s Daughter Fibers. We strive to make diversity and inclusion at the forefront of our company. We take a holistic approach to this by educating people about the culture and diversity FDF has to offer and by standing with, up, and in solidarity of marginalized groups of people. We do this through the spiritual artistry in our yarns, social media platforms, and in our local community where we fight to stop sex trafficking and better the basic needs, education, and artistic expression of American Indian children. We have used our success and platform to start the Sister’s United Initiative, which donates monthly to organizations supporting MMIP and American Indian children. We do not tolerate disrespect or violence against BIPOC, LGBTQ2IAAP+, or other marginalized groups of people, ever. This work is continuing and will shift and grow as we do.
