Meet the Author

Knitting and animals have always played big roles in Margrit's life. Her mother taught her to knit when she was 3 years old. At age 10, Margrit decided she wanted to be a zoo warden when she grew up. That didn't quite happen. She moved to New York City and became a graphic designer instead.

In 1977 she and her husband, Albrecht Pichler, bought a farm in the Hudson River Valley in New York State, and stocked it with a collection of animals: cats, dogs, ducks, chickens, peacocks and a flock of fine-wool Merino sheep. In 1983 the couple established MOREHOUSE FARM MERINO, a Merino sheep farm and yarn company. With an abundant supply of fabulously soft yarn tempting her, knitting became Margrit's new passion. And creating Critter Knits was the next logical step in her career as a designer. And for the past 30 years, Margrit has been the principal designer behind Morehouse Farm's popular KnitKits and Critter Designs.

Morehouse Farm's unique contribution to America's Merino sheep industry has been recognized by the New York Times, Forbes Magazine, the American Sheep Industry Association, and major TV stations across the country. And publications such as Martha Stewart Living, Victoria Magazine, Country Living, among many others, have written about Morehouse Farm Merino Wool.

"There are places in this world that feel magical. Morehouse Farm is one of them...Some of the magic at Morehouse Farm can be explained by the efforts of two of the most dedicated, hardworking, and stupendously creative people I have ever met: Margrit Lohrer and Albrecht Pichler, the farm proprietors."

Melanie Falick, "Knitting in America"
