The Yarnshack’s new building is a dream come true for owner, Lori Hunt.

She has been washing, carding and spinning yarn in her home for the past few

years. So it’s a pleasure for her to set up shop in the new building that was constructed

on Twp. Rd. 119, just off St.Rt. 314 north of Chesterville.

Hunt makes a variety of crocheted hats, headbands, mittens and socks made of llama and alpaca fibers. She uses fibers from alpacas and llamas on her farm and washes, cards and prepares the yarns herself. As well as selling these hand crocheted items in the shop, she has a variety of Christmas decorations, soaps, felted pins and gifts in the store.

The Yarnshack also has “rolags”, or rolls of alpaca and llama fiber that can be spun.

Hunt also creates a unique, one-of-a-kind, hand-spun yarn. They have a variety of fiber available

from “prime blanket” to the second cuttings (neck and leg fiber,) that is both washed and unwashed.

She also has various lengths for spinning and felting.

Hunt says the alpaca and llama fiber is both soft and durable. It is hypoallergenic since

it doesn’t contain lanolin and is naturally water repellent. Colors range from black to brown-black,

silver, gray and white.

Hidden Creek Acres Yarnshack is located just off State Route 314 north of Chesterville at

7300 Twp. Rd. 119. In December she has weekend hours only on Sat. 10-5 and Sun. 12-5.

You can find her on Facebook and with email at [email protected] Mailing address is

7300 Township Road 119, Fredericktown, OH 43019.
