Our story

Timber and Twine is a collaboration between a shepherdess and a woodworker. Here you will find a collection of handmade pieces made at home on our farm, located at the foot of the front range in Northern Colorado, and carefully selected handmade pieces from afar.

Enjoying and understanding the slow, meaningful process of handmade, culminated in the conception of Timber and Twine by yet another fiber enthusiast and maker of wood things. Now that they have moved on to focus on other things on their farm in Australia, Timber and Twine has passed to us. We will continue the tradition of creating things inspired by the resources of our farm, focusing on sustainability, natural materials and traditional crafts. We continue to source the very special hand botanically dyed wool yarns, from India and have added botanically dyed cotton yarns from Peru. Fair trade is a priority, and working with artisans to help continue their textile traditions, supports both domestic and international families and communities.

Our Philosophy

We believe in the beauty and sustainability of natural materials.  We believe in the unsung value of small farms.  We believe in fair prices and worthy wages. We believe in the power of community.

We want to live in a world where safe, sustainable products are mainstream, a world where peace is the highest priority, where women and minorities are treated with dignity and equality.

We choose to use, preserve, and pass on heritage craft skills and will never use mass production for our goods.  We intentionally show the faces of our animal partners and tell their stories.

Join us in celebrating the simple elegance and value of goods created in traditional ways, the animals and plants that provide our foundational materials and a return to a simpler, honest time.
