Spinning and Knitting Studio Equipment and Fiber Liquidation Sale

A well known spinner, knitter and hand dyer has passed away in North Carolina and her family has commissioned us to liquidate all yarns, fibers, cones and equipment found in her studio.

Roving and Fiber sale at DBNYAn avid spinner and collector, she owned two 100 year old Auto Knitter machines for knitted socks in working condition!

She amassed hundreds of bags of exotic and breed specific roving and fleece — among them Yak, Cashmere, Baby Alpaca, Angora, Tussah Silk and many Mulberry Silk roving and fiber sale at DBNY and Merino blends as well as Cormo, Finn, Shetland, Merino, Wensleydale and Targhee fleece, among others.

Also found were a huge amount of rare fiber cones including Italian cashmere, British wools, Japanese silks and many more. The variety of hard to find Personal Stash Yarn is unbelievable and her family would like us to redistribute all of these unused treasures to you! While we were going over the inventory with the family, they discovered a bill for a storage unit they knew nothing about. It was filled wit more yarns, fibers and accessories.
