My husband graciously lets us use his building to have our show. It is handicap accessible and we will have coffee and cookies for those who want to linger to check out the fleeces, roving, and batts from our sheep.


Also, lots of handmade items including soaps, lavender sachets, and purses and pillows.


Meet some of the sheep who help provide all this wonderful fiber.

Cold snowy day

It was a really cold day today, 16 degrees,  but the sheep did not seem to mind that fact. They are staying nice and warm with their thick fleeces.

We have been dyeing wool for batts and roving. This past weekend we did about six different colors. Carding batts has been fun with the new Patrick Green SuperCarder that joined the wool processing equipment. I am learning how the machine works and am starting to blend some fibers, such as mohair and llama, to add some variety for spinners and felters. We hope to have pictures up on my listing when I get a few more colors done.
