The Long Island Yarn and Farm is helping heal the hands of health care workers.
From lanolin, an oil that comes from sheeps' wool, Tabitha Haubold makes skin care products - something in big demand with all the hand washing and sanitizing.
Haubold says her business has been taking a hit from the health crisis, so she's not in a position to donate her products. But she did cut prices by a third and came up with the Heal the Healers initiative.
So far, they've raised $5,000. That money was used to buy a variety of skin care products that were given to workers at Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead.
