What we do

Iron Horse developed from a dream of owning and raising animals that produce some of the finest wool/fiber products. It grew to incorporate a community of local artisans to showcase and bring their one of a kind hand crafted art to the community. Joining the Natick downtown area and highlighting our artisans as well as expanding the fiber products, yarns, fiber art equipment and continuing our full line of classes and workshops has made the circle complete. We are unique in what we offer and hope you will stop in for a visit.

When it comes to knitting, crocheting, felt making or hand spinning, no question is silly. Our wish is for everyone who wants to learn or to continue with their fiber art passion have a peaceful place to come. Our co-op members and staff are willing to help you select the special gift, accessory, fiber product or equipment.
