I raise Romney-Merino breed sheep, referred to as my sheep friends. I use their wool to create wool products (farm to finished product). Wool products such as hats, mittens, scarves, socks etc. Wool is sheared, cleaned and sent off to a commercial spinning mill to be spun into yarn. Some of the yarn is the is shipped to other commercial mills to be spun into socks, hats, mittens, scarves, gloves etc. I work with small mills and design all of my products. The rest of the wool is returned to me and I dye it or leave it the natural color and make items on my sock machine or loom. I sell the spun wool dyed or natural colored. I repurpose materials to create upcycled items, such as rug, mittens and hats.
The purpose of the business is to provide home grown ethically raised wool products. I also educate on the fiber arts to local schools, churches and any citizens interested in learning this last art. I want to keep this craft alive so I teach to anyone who is interested. It is a passion of mine and love to share it.
