Our Wool and Yarn
Get close to the beauty of sheep without having them on your lawn or in the nearby park. Meet our sheep as individuals while you experience the beauty of their wool in its natural state.
We manage our fleece for cleanliness and quality. Not every sheep provides wool that meets our standards for sale to handspinners, so you can know that any raw fleece offered is well-sorted and well-vetted.
How Often Are They Shorn?
Our Bluefaced and Border Leicester sheep are shorn once a year, providing fiber with a generous staple length.
Is it GOod For Felting?
Both our Border Leicester and Bluefaced Leicester sheep provide attractive locks for felting.
How Do we make our Batts ?
We wash locks in Blue Dawn to leave some lanolin in the fiber. Washed locks are then hand-combed and then drum-carded in two passes.
How Do we Process our Wool?
Our wool is processed just enough to retain the natural character of the wool without compromising spinning quality.
