Backyard Fibers

A family-owned company, based in Illinois. Our mission is to provide the handcrafter with luxurious, responsibly sourced wool yarn, grown in the USA and processed by small US mills. We buy fleece directly from small, local farmers, who practice sustainable methods. We can honestly say we know who made our yarn, from the farmers to the mill workers and the hand-dyer. We are working on more offerings in the coming months, including a new Merino fingering weight, Merino DK weight, Targhee fingering weight, and a natural gray Merino in various weights. We are also hoping to produce a single ply.

We don’t simply list brands on our site. We actually verify brands before listing them on our site!

The businesses on this page have been vetted (not certified) by us. They are makers, retailers, brands, mom & pop shops, technology companies, distributors or suppliers of domestically sourced raw materials, general manufacturers, and service providers. They make or carry products Made in USA. They serve businesses and/or consumers. In some cases, not everything they carry will be Made in USA. We celebrate them anyway for making an effort.

If you make or sell American made: textiles, fabric, wood, steel, yarn, raw materials, etc… and would like us to feature your business on this page, fill out our application and a MAM rep will respond within 48hrs.
