Process & Product

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 some wool off to be spun into gorgeous white and natural color yarn and carted into roving for hand spinning.

 

Other wool gets boxed up and sent to Swan's Island Blankets on the coast of Maine for a line of hand woven blankets and throws made authentically with our wool.

"All of our sheep are named and numbered and very close records are kept.  Precise record keeping is an absolute must"

"If you loved Rosebud’s, or Arosa’s or Oliver's fleece from one shearing you can request the same fleece the next year ".

Teeswaters are always white and Wensleydales are white and naturally colored, ranging from white to silver, to shades of gray, charcoal and brown to black.  In twelve months their locks can reach twelve inches in length.  We are generally shearing every 10 to 12 months depending on the fleece.
