Adirondack Fibers and Yarn Shop in Long Lake, NY

Just in time for Adirondack Quilt Camp it’s time to open the window on Adirondack Fibers and Yarn Shop located on Adams Park Way off of Kickerville Road.  Hey, you never know what you’ll discover in Long Lake, NY!  


“If you’re anything like me when you have an idea for a project you want to do it RIGHT NOW!! I don’t want to have to wait until the weekend when I can get somewhere that sells the stuff I need, I want to start (and usually finish) it in that moment. Over the winter I picked up crocheting again after a few years hiatus. I had some yarn laying around to make hats out of, I borrowed yarn from friends and eventually had to get out of town to buy more yarn. Little did I know I didn’t even have to leave Long Lake to get material, we have our own yarn and fiber store right here in town! 


Adirondack Yarn and Fibers is located on 48A Adams Park Way, just off of Kickerville Rd, and it has IT ALL! You want to crochet? You got it! You want to knit? You got it. You want to weave or even make your own yarn? You can do all of that. 


Donna Adams is an avid knitter, crocheter and weaver who not only sells yarn, but made her own yarn (and it’s for sale) from sheep she used to have on her 36 acre farm. Although they no longer keep the animals they used to have she has plenty of wool and yard that she spun and dyed herself. The wool she has for sale is 50% wool from her sheep, 50% alpaca from the former farm in North Creek and 100% Adirondack! It’s very soft and comes in some amazing colors. In addition to these beautiful yarns she sells she makes any number of articles of clothing, one of my favorites is called a chill-chaser, and when time permits teaches all of these skills. 


Not to be outdone her husband, Bob Adams is an equally amazing artist. His carpentry skills are top-notch. The table and the beautiful cabinet that are in the yarn and fiber store were made by Bob right there at the farm. Make sure you ask Donna to roll back the protective placemats to see the table, it’s worth a look. In addition to the furniture Bob has made he has also made a lot of the products that Donna sells in the store. There are looms of various sizes for the beginner weaver to the experienced weaver. Knitting and crochet needles, as well as drop spindles that are tole painted by Donna herself, are also hand made by Bob, and can be purchased right there at the store. Everything you need for your next project is available at the store. 


I love crocheting and all of the things that go along with it but the thing that will make me want to go back over and over is the greeter, Cosmo. Going to a craft store is awesome enough but add this handsome dogger into the mix and it’s just about perfect! I wouldn’t mind sitting on the porch crocheting the day away with his handsome face! 


If you’re looking to stop up to the store her hours are Thursday through Sunday 11am – 4pm in the summer and by appointment in the winter. She also will take orders if you’re just looking for something handmade. You should never have to leave town again to get your craft on!”
