What kinds of things do you carry?
We carry a wide variety of products but some of our favorites are Malabrigo, Hedgehog Fibres, and Hobbledehoy Rovings and batts. We are also the home of Tempting Ewe Yarns which are hand-dyed by the owners Wae and Amanda. Cloverhill is a full-service Local Yarn Store and as expected, offers a range of yarn and notions from workhorse and sensibly priced to something a little higher end. We’re happy to help find a pattern and yarn that fits your inspiration and offer help on a project that might have you stumped. We also offer classes and private lessons for weaving, crochet, spinning and knitting.

How long have you been in business, and what inspired you to open your business?
Wae and I (Amanda) met over a drum-carder in 2012 and hit it off right away. Spring of 2013 we joined together as Tempting Ewe Yarns and participated in our first Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival with the previous owner of Cloverhill Yarn Shop. When the opportunity came about to buy Cloverhill, we saw the chance to rejuvenate the business and revitalize the Cloverhill Community spirit that started almost 50 years ago with the Weaver’s Place. Since then, the open table policy has customers dropping by on their day off or during a lunch break to catch some knitting time. We feel confident in saying since taking ownership, we’ve built on the history of our shop to create a space where the fiber loving community can gather free of judgement or prejudice to celebrate a love for our craft. We have the most supportive community of women and men and it really shows.

What's your favorite thing about having a LYS?
Of course we have a fondness for yarn and fiber but more important, our favorite part about having a LYS would have to be the people we interact with every day. We enjoy meeting new customers, getting to know them and welcoming them into our community. They know we're their safe place and if they need help we're there. We also enjoy the giving spirit of our customers as they support local charities through donations at the shop. We really have an amazing and caring community of crafters at Cloverhill and it regularly fills my heart with joy to know it.
