With more than 26 years of acquired knitting knowledge, the professional yarn darners at Northampton Wools teach novice knitters how to fasten fibers famously. Shorn-sheep sewers can begin by browsing Northampton's bounty of natural knitting necessities. Once digits are dressed with the proper tools, they can follow the lead of noted knitter Linda Daniels and her staff of six, who together introduce basic techniques in the three-hour workshop. During this one-day course, students learn to cast on, knit, purl, and taunt cats. More well-versed weavers might want to partake in a six-week knitting course (meeting once a week for two hours), in which students are organized according to their stitching skill set and sense of gravity.

In 2007, manager David Stauffer transformed a century-old building into a charming dry-goods store. Honoring the antique architecture, he still sends grains sailing down the building's antique wooden chute, which unloads shipments into pickup trucks and the gullets of bears that are tired of stealing picnic baskets. Additionally, the shop continues to stock its signature birdseed blend, lawn fertilizer, garden and pet supplies, hay, and other outdoor essentials.
