Welcome to North Light Handcrafted

North Light Handcrafted (the enhanced North Light Fibers) designs and produces handcrafted artisanal garments and home decor. We create hand made pottery and quilted items as well as knit and woven garments and home decor. In the future, we plan to introduce wood and welded sculptures to our portfolio.

We invite you to explore our garments and home decor from lovely throws to stunning pottery to amazing hats and socks. We continue to work with and support the Hartford Artisans Weaving Center (blind, visually impaired and Senior citizens) and Stitch 22 (women's run organization helping women in war torn Bosnia). We made our yarns 100% in our mill and Leah throws pottery in her studio.

North Light Fibers designs are based on timeless principles of clean lines, simplicity and geometrics as well as a blend of texture and color. We now have two creative centers, one on Block Island, RI and the other in Afton, MN. We would love to have you visit but if you cannot, please enjoy our website, join our mailing list and like us on Facebook and Instagram. We hope you find an exciting handcrafted keepsake and thank you for your support.

What Our Customers Say...

  • “If you have not been to the mill, you really need to. The North Light story is fantastic and you really understand what Sven, Laura and Karyn are trying to do. The mill, 1661 animal farm and the island are magical. Oh, and the dogs are awesome.”

  • “Water Street is luscious, soft and elegant. The heathery colors are perfect. It is on the top of my list!”

  • “I was a bit skeptical as I am not a knitter but my wife is and she really wanted to go. While she loved the yarn and all the patterns, the tour of the mill was great and the discussion we had about the island, the mill and year round economic development was really cool.”

  • “The Spring Street fingering yarn is a joy to knit. The way Laura and Karyn spin it and the colors are just right. Thank you.”
