Who We Are
The beautiful machine that is One Lupine runs on a small but diverse collective. Our vastly different backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets inspire creativity and motivation in all areas of the business.
Jodi Clayton: Owner & Founder
I founded One Lupine Fiber Arts in 2002. My business began with, and has grown from, my deep love of wool and natural fibers. I have a rich background in knitting, spinning, felting and textile design. My business encompasses the wholesale arm of One Lupine (operating since 2003) as well as a retail store focusing on fine craft, art and apparel made in the USA and Canada. Our mission is to call attention to, support, and celebrate the very best in mindful making in North America. We truly want you to enjoy the process of looking, seeing and selecting in our space. We hope that you are delighted, soothed and sustained by the experience. These makers, these people, friends, neighbors, family members, and strangers, are indeed the cultural glue that helps hold us together. Together we remember how it feels to create, to dream, to share, to love, and how to be fully human. I also own and operate Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply, and unique fiber supply shop, dedicated to promoting Maine based yarns and fibers. In our sunny welcoming space your will find, our line of house yarns and spinning fibers and my own handspun yarn, along side of such well known brands as Peace Fleece, Jagger Spun, String Theory, and more. We are not your usual yarn shop. We offer treasures and stories not found elsewhere. Our house line of Shepherds Choice yarns are all sourced directly from the Maine landscape. It is in these place based yarns and fibers that we breathe, and where we find our sustainability. Our yarns and fibers are sold through our brick and mortar store, this website and through our monthly yarn and fiber mail order club.
Taylor Pomroy: Shop Guardian & Potions Master of Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply/ One Lupine
I was born & raised in the Bangor area. I left the Pine Tree State to study fiber/fashion design at Finlandia University's International School of Art & Design, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. There I met my partner Jason, who is my #1 cheerleader and studio assistant. I have touched on aspects of art including weaving, knitting, garment design, sculpture, dye techniques (including natural and non-traditional), felting, spinning, graphic design and jacquard design. With the help of my loving matriarchs I got my start in fiber early, I have been knitting and sewing for over 20 years. I have an affinity for all shades of green and purple. I enjoy caffeinated beverages (Shout out to Wicked Brew's Midnight Mocha!), caring for my leopard gecko Bebeaux, Knitting while watching true crime docs, and chasing Little Miss Tennessee the shop pup around. Every day at Maine Yarn & Fiber Supply I learn something new and enjoy helping fellow fiber fans.

I grew up and continue to live on my family's apple orchard. In one form or another, knitting and fiber has been a part of my life ever since I was a child. I remember going to the Union Fair just to see the 4-H sheep show as a child dreaming of owning my own sheep one day! I have been knitting in earnest since I was pregnant with my middle son, over 15 years ago. I love knitting, spinning, and all things fiber! Oh, and did I mention that my dream came true to owning my sheep?
