Esther’s Place Fiber shop


This weekend my sister and I went to Big Rock to check out this newish fiber store Esther’s Place. It was great, the people were very enthusiastic and friendly. They are involved in the Illinois Green Pastures Fiber Cooperative (which just received a USDA grant) and also have a farm with their own sheep. I highly recommend it to any fiber enthusiasts in the Chicagoland area.
