About Tess’ Designer Yarns


TESS’ DESIGNER YARNS began as Pigeon Hill Farm over 40 years ago. We had many beautiful Romney sheep with long lustrous fleeces on our ocean-front farm. With the arrival of my daughter Tess in 1986, there wasn’t enough time & energy for everyone. Somebody had to go and it wasn’t going to be Tess! So I traded my ewes for TONS of fleeces and my rams went on an extended working vacation.

Tess  has modeled for our ads & at shows across the country. Tess is our color and fashion consultant and keeps me advised  of current trends. She manages the retail shop and you  may meet her at shows, also, helping to set up & manage the booth.

We offer kits and yarns in exceptional colors at reasonable prices. Hand dyed yarns insure a unique garment. We are fortunate to have top designers sharing their creativity!
Our high quality natural fiber yarns let you enjoy every aspect of creative playing – from the winding of the balls of soft luxurious yarn all the way  through to the final pleasure of wearing your creations! We want you to be pleased with our yarns and will help you in any way we can to help insure your success.

Enjoy! Melinda Bickford (Tess’ mom)
