Welcome to Raisin’ Cane at Mt. Rutsen Studio!
We are located in the picturesque town of Rhinebeck, New York, nestled in the Hudson River Valley, true sheep country, and home of the world famous New York State Sheep and Wool Festival.
Founded in 1981, Raisin’ Cane at Mt. Rutsen Studio offers a unique selection of wool, hand woven splint baskets, and oodles of knitting tools, stitch markers and our exclusive Yarn Carousels.
Through the year, you can find us at sheep and wool festivals throughout the Northeast.
We welcome you to stop and see us whether you are looking for wool, a gadget, or a beautiful basket – we would love to meet you!
“If you work with your hands, you’re a laborer.
If you work with your hands and your mind, you’re a craftsman.
If you work with your hands, and your mind and your heart, you’re an artist.”
-Saint Francis of Assisi
