The products available and the personalities of the owners Amy and Jim make it worth a visit. The fact that their soap and on site made woolens and yarn products are available just makes it worth a visit if only to buy these items. Since I moved away I now buy via the internet but miss interacting with the Grants. (Owners.)

Loved our visit here! Amy was so kind to show us some animals and we were able to see much of the production process. I will love knitting with the yarn that I bought there. We also bought some great smelling soap.

Good Karma is a working farm, with its own Maine-made yarns shop up front. While you take in their sumptuous yarns and their specially made soaps displayed in the front section, Jim and Amy Grant will most likely invite you to the back, where they are working---dying, spinning, weaving, or making socks on their sock-making machine (they give classes to get you started), with the animals on the other side of the windowed pen. That day, the alpacas were in there, staying cool. Don't miss this one. Check out their website to read (and watch) more about the owners and their farm. (I bought some gorgeous chunky weight and their loofah soap.)

Good Karma is SO interesting! They make yarn from the sheep and alpacas right there on the farm. The animals are so sweet. The machinery used to transform the raw wool into dyed yarn is really impressive. Jim and Amy are some of the nicest people you will meet. And, I got to make myself some socks! 5 stars for sure!

A very friendly place with lots going on as is any working farm. But owners Jim and Amy still make time for friendly exchanges. The yarn making process is very cool and you can purchase their yarn at very competitive price. How many places can you meet the critters, see how the fiber is processed and purchase some for your next project.

I love the yarns produced at Good Karma, and Amy and Jim (the owners) could not possibly be more welcoming. The yarns are soft and in luscious colors - great for sweaters, hats and socks - anything worn close to the skin. Amy is often at one of the local farmers' markets with yarn and their delicious soaps, but the wee shop on the farm is open most days until 4 pm. The shop is small, with appropriate-sized stock, but it is a real treat to visit. I went there on a recent family visit to Belfast to buy 10 skeins of worsted for a sweater, and Jim was so friendly. He invited me to come back and bring my little grandsons (ages 3 and 6) to see the spinning room and meet the animals. They did so later with their parents and loved it.
