About our Farm

— About —

our farm

Wild Rose Farm is a wool producing, working sheep farm situated near Penn Cove on beautiful Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. We have been raising sheep for wool for over 40 years.

Our Wensleydales and Teeswaters produce beautiful, long, lustrous, strong wool. More recently we have added the Swiss Valias Blacknose breed to our flock.

These sheep thrive in our northwest coastal environment producing incredibly strong, beautiful and lustrous wool. Our climate is very similar to where these sheep originated in the UK.  The quality of the wool is a direct result of happy, healthy, and well cared for sheep.  

The health of our animals comes first.  When raising rare heritage breeds the genetic pool is smaller so we are very careful to get as much genetic diversity as possible.  We have multiple ram and ewe lines available and will artificially inseminate as well with rams from the U.K.

Our raw fleeces which are heavily skirted to remove dirt, hay, straw etc are valued by handspinners and crafters like doll makers who use the long locks of wool for beards and hair.  We send wool to spinning mills to produce gorgeous white and natural colored yarns.  Also, some yarn goes on to Swans Island Blankets on the coast of Maine for a line of hand woven blankets and throws made with our wool.
