Best of Hudson Valley Winners: 2008
Pick: Editors' Picks
About: The Merino superfine sheep on this picturesque farm produce (as you may guess) super-fine, super-soft wool that spins into yarn that's even more super -- and not itchy. Morehouse Designs, a retail store a mile from the farm, opened 10 years ago to the enthusiastic approval of local knitters, who flock in to buy the gorgeous yarns. There are more than 70 colors, in weights from bulky to gossamer, as well as knitting supplies, patterns, and kits. Ready-made hats and mittens (check out the quirky Critter Collection), shawls, scarves, and sweaters are available for those who don't know a purl from a pearl.
