About Us:

Hay square bales and 4/4 round bales are our #1 product. 1st and 2nd cutting plus mulch available.
Silverbrook, a natural fiber farm, was established in 1981. The picturesque land had been purchased by Jacob Mottorn, son of Pennsylvania Dutch tenent farmers, in 1939. The 237 acre farm includes one of the original 180 acres land grants given by the Commonweath of PA for fighting native Indians.
In 1981, Jacob's daughter and family returned to Pennsylvania from the stressful life of Houston, Tx. The first animals were purchased within a month and consisted of 11 sheep and a pair of angora goats(mohair). Love for the animals soon became a desire to spin their fleeces. The flock continued to expand with Corriedale crossed with Rambouillet or Border Leister/Kericle for natural colored fleeces. Angora rabbits were added. Sheepskins were processed for sale. During the initial years, sales were conducted from the farm or at numerous festivals, craft shows and fairs.
In 1985, a cottage industry was constructed on the farm. The basement served as a fiber sorting, cleaning and dyeing area. The first floor contained products for sale, and the 2nd floor included spinning wheels and knitting machines for production and lessons. Spinning wheels, knitting machines, and hand knit and crochet supplies were added.
Winter weather had become a serious problem due to the long dirt lane. An 1860 victorian home was purchased and restored 1n 1997, one mile from the farm for shop expansion. The new location is accessible all year located on Rt. 119, the major north-south highway in the area. Additional spinning wheel companies and looms were acquired for regular inventory. We offer free lessons with the purchase of floor looms and spinning wheels. Quality yarn companies and silk, rayon, ramie and cotton fibers have been added as well as our own processed linen. With the trend for "green" fibers the store now stocks seaweed, corn, soybean, milk, bamboo,
In 1998, llamas and alpacas were purchased. Llamas are cross bred with an alpaca sire. The resulting fiber is longer and silky.
The current shop is called Silverbrook Fiber Arts and Sheepskins. It is located at 16040 Route 119 N, Marchand, PA 15758-5804. Through the years we have added sheepskin vests, slippers, mittens, gloves, auto steering wheel and shoulder belt covers, bike seat covers, and car wash mitts. Our sheepskins, whites and natural colors, are processed machine washable.
