No matter what your fiber passion, I bet I have a fleece here that will make you smile. Whether it is wool, mohair or alpaca that makes your fiber artist fingers itch, I invite you to come into my barn to see the beautiful Faces of Fiber hard at work, growing your fleeces.
The joy of raw wool over the kind processed commercially at the mill is the handle, the luster, and the natural crimp. It’s truly amazing to me that an animal that sleeps in the woods, rolls in the dust, and bathes in my pond can produce a fleece of such softness and beauty.
If you’d like to try a new kind of wool or fiber, this is your opportunity!
If you are unsure about which kind of fleece suits you best, we can discuss the benefits of one kind of fiber over another for various projects, and find the one that will get you hooked on raw wool.
Once you have selected your fleece or fleeces, we will shear it, and I’ll explain the different types of fleece found on the animal, the delights of prime fleece, and why we avoid second cuts. We will barn skirt as we go, and then skirt again when the shearing is complete.
Start here: choose your fleece!
