Handpicked & Handmade
The farm story begins when my husband and I purchased our first home in Vermont and received the house warming gift of two sheep. Several years later, with those two sheep in tow, we made the trip back to our home state and settled in the rolling hills of western Wisconsin. Once back in Wisconsin, we started to add to the flock. We chose sheep that would provide us with the best quality fiber and most natural product that could be used in a variety of ways. We decided on Shetland and Scottish Blackface sheep, both breeds are known for their hardiness and wits. Our little Shetlands provide us with the wonderful, soft, and naturally colored wool that we turn into yarn and their fleeces are used in our felted items. No dyes are used in our yarns, just pure Shetland goodness. Our Scottish Blackface provide the coarser wool, used for rugs and bags, and the milk for our soaps.
