Hello everyone! Brittany here the owner and dyer of Machete Shoppe. I just wanted to give an update about where we are with the pandemic. Currently Machete Shoppe is still operating at normal capacity. Having the dye studio here on our farm means I dont have to leave the house for any aspect of business. The only changes will be to shipping. I will be shipping only once a week and scheduling for USPS to pick up packages from the property. This is to help myself and postal workers stay safe and limit our exposure as much as possible. I am the only employee here at Machete Shoppe and will be the only one handling your orders until postal pickup. Practicing strict hygiene and sanitation of the studio is of great concern to myself and for your safety/health. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me at 

Stay safe everyone and thank you for continuing to support my small business in these uncertain times. 


Welcome to Machete Shoppe Yarn!

My name is Brittany Petko and I am the owner of Machete Shoppe. I do just about everything from dyeing the yarn to managing all the behind the scenes in my dye studio on our farm nestled in the heart of the Poconos of Pennsylvania. I specialize in small batch, hand dyed yarn made with love and artistry. I still consider myself a stay at home mom so you'll find many times your packages sent off with loving logo stickers perfectly placed on from little hands eager to help. 

Take a look around, if you have any questions please don't hesitate in contacting me via the contact form provided here on the website or directly through email to
