Fiber from the farm

 Shearing occurs annually. The shearer uses hand-blades for the process, which allows a little more wool to be left & seems less stressful for the sheep. Please note that these sheep are not covered during the year, so they are susceptible to VM & heavy lanolin in the fleece. The darker color of the lanolins wash out beautifully to the lustrous natural white. Though our flock has very recently been dispersed, fleece will still be available for awhile, 

Wash with minimal agitation - this fiber felts easily! Start with very hot water, use a dowel or wooden spoon to push down, & maintain consistent temperatures with the rinse. If needed, gently massage the ends to release the dirt & lanolin. We use Dawn detergent, let it soak overnight, then place in a rinse tub until the soap is out.

Hand-comb when preparing for spinning.

Spin in a semi-worsted long draw to avoid over-spinning.

Air-dry in a well-ventilated area, such as on an old screen.
