But you might as well check out the yarn shop while you’re here… And enjoy the seven food & beverage establishments just on our block!

Our shop is stocked with quality yarns (both fashion and easy-care), hooks and needles, books and patterns, buttons, sewing notions, baskets and bags, and greeting cards, too. We also have needlefelting kits and supplies, as well as threads for needlepoint and embroidery. Lots of stitchery kits for beginners, too.

We offer knitting, crochet, sewing and needlework classes year-round for all ages, beginners and seasoned stitchers alike. We enjoy helping our customers find new projects, and will happily assist anyone with their project, whether it’s an ancient UFO or something brand new.

All are welcome to drop in to our free weekly gatherings on Mondays 10am-12pm and Thursdays 6-8pm. The Sock Circle meets the First Friday of every month 5:30-8:30pm. Every day at Altman’s you will meet talented and friendly people ready to share techniques and give encouragement with a smile.

We are looking forward to greeting you during the 3rd annual Long Island Yarn Crawl!

Shop Specials  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 are waiting 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, as some GPS devices take you to the back of our property. Any problems, please call 631-924-8110 or 631-680-6721.
