The Woolery

Updated February 27, 2024

In 1981, Marianne Horchler decided to offer retail wool, basic supplies, and spinning lessons at the family farm in Genoa, NY.  In 1995, The Woolery became one of the first fiber arts suppliers with a website. After selling the farm, Tim and Marianne moved the business to Murfreesboro, North Carolina in 2001.

Chris & Nancy Miller bought the business in 2009 and moved it to historic Downtown Frankfort, Kentucky where they expanded locations twice.

In 2015, current owners Wave & Perri McFarland purchased The Woolery, upgraded and expanded retail space yet again, improved the online experience, and expanded the classroom accommodations!

Some notable brands in The Woolery’s catalog include Maurice Brassard, Ashford, Schacht, Kromski, Louet, Loop by Loop Studio, as well as numerous brands and lines of weaving, knitting, and crochet yarns.

The Woolery offers over 10,000 products including yarn, weaving equipment, spinning wheels, rug hooking supplies, crochet kits, felting materials, and more. We are proud to be a family-owned small business for over 40 years, and look forward to serving the fiber arts community all over the world for years to come!
