Long Island Livestock Company is a 17 acre homestead committed to the wellbeing of camelids and other fibered livestock, providing the most diverse local resource of natural fibers right here on Long Island! Along with our own exclusive line of yarns, patterns, notions and accessories we can give you the unique opportunity to meet and learn about where all of this fiber comes from. I am a professional shearer and travel the east coast, tending to other fibered flocks, harvesting along my journey and using both that fiber along with my own to create our products, along with others that are locally resourced. Our award winning llamas and fleeces speak for the quality of the fiber we have to offer for the spinner’s and knitter’s delight. We welcome you to our farm and our home and look forward to sharing with you what we love to do and the animals that help us do it.
