Fiber & Yarn
We have a small flock of primarily Romney sheep. Our flock was purchased from the Stoddart Farmily Farm and has been selected for fleece quality for over 20 years. The fleeces yield a long staple, nicely crimped and fine fibre and is ideal for hand spinning. Our flock is raised on pasture and hay.
We sell fleeces 'in the grease", washed fleece, roving and various weights of yarn. Most of our processing is done at Wellington Fibres. They are the most environmentally and fleece friendly mill we can find in Ontario. This yields a soft, luxurious garment whether you’re hand spinning or knitting from our yarns. However, because they don’t put the wool in a sulphuric acid treatment, you will find the odd bit of vegetable matter (VM). We do our best to keep the fleeces clean and the picker gets most of the VM out but there is always some that sneaks through. We think a little VM here and there is a small price to pay for not having the wool treated with sulphuric acid.
Currently we experimenting with natural dyes like black walnut in addition to our several coloured Romney sheep that provide us with a natural colour range from natural white to dark grey.
As we build our inventory, our stock may be limited at times, please email us for our currently available yarns.
