Insider Guide 2010
ucked in the trees of Black Forest, Table Rock Llamas Fiber Arts is a fiber lover's perfect hideaway. You won't find any llamas near the shop, but we know what you really want is their wool and lots of yarn, yarn and more yarn. Oh, and books, patterns, spinning wheels, looms, dyes, needles and notions. The store's on the front part of the property — out back is a large classroom to help you use all those items you've purchased.
Writer's Pick: Best Place to Get Lost in (Full-Price) Yarn
Enter Table Rock Llamas Fiber Arts Studio & the DyeWorks and, if you're a fiber craft freak of any sort, you're in paradise. Baskets of hand-dyed-on-site wools in all colors of the rainbow, hangings of lusciously soft hanks, stacks of how-to books and patterns, dye kits, wheels and looms. Table Rock has it all at decent prices for your purchasing pleasure, plus a second building out back designated for classes that range from cabling and felting to wool dyeing with natural extracts and silk spinning. No llamas on site, but plenty of yarn to pet. — Kirsten Akens
