A unique experience awaits you when you visit us for the Long Island Yarn Crawl – we’re not a store, we’re a FARM! Long Island Livestock Company is a 17-acre yarn and fiber farm in Yaphank, committed to the well being of fibered livestock, specializing in llamas. Fiber, mohair and wool are the by-products from the animals on our farm. As a professional shearer and yarn designer, founder and farm owner, Tabbethia Haubold-Magee, utilizes this fiber, as well as fiber from other American farms, in the production of our own yarns. These yarns put a face with the fiber from nature….and through the hand knit garments made, connect people to the animals we love. Our line of yarns are all limited edition, highlighting the natural colors of the animals, spun in small batches and only available through Long Island Livestock Co with each skein numbered and entirely Made in the USA. We work with designers to provide exclusive pattern support for all the yarns we create. For the Yarn Crawl, local designer, and our Creative Director, Linda Unger, will be on hand each day to answer your questions and sign patterns.

We also carry unique items you can only find here including our Shepherdess Skincare, an all natural, handcrafted lanolin based product line, accessories such as handcrafted sweater guards, and finished products such as handwoven blankets, scarves, shrugs, socks and so much more.

While you are here shopping, weather permitting, we will have a shearing demonstration each day at 2 pm, and please save time to tour yourself around the farm and visit with the animals – our sheep, angora goats, hens, “Olive” our angora rabbit, and of course, all of the llamas arewaiting to meet you! You’ll be able to see how last year’s crias (baby llamas) are growing up! There may even be a guest appearance by some lambs from The Suffolk County Farm & Education Center. Please check our Instagram or Facebook account daily for outdoor activity updates.

Our farm store will be open from 10am – 6pm each day of the Crawl, and we welcome “by appointment only” any other time of the year. Every day of the Crawl we will give away a different door prize basket featuring goodies from Long Island artisans! We will also have a different Daily Shop Special each day! We are passionate about our animals and about fiber and look forward to the opportunity to share them with you.

If you haven’t been here before, you’ll be coming to a residential area. We are in a red house, and there’ll be a big black and white wooden cut out of our llama “Count” to greet you at the mailbox! Please see the directions on our website, www.lilivestockco.com/directions as some GPS devices take you to the back of our property. Any problems, please call 631-924-8110 or 631-680-6721.
