We invite you to meet the animals that produce these beautiful fleeces. It is a long journey from good animal husbandry practices to shearing, sorting, classing, de-vegging, washing, dyeing, picking, carding, spinning, finding the perfect end product and marketing it to potential customers. This is all part of our labour of love.
We offer wet felting, machine knitting, weaving and needle felting courses from November to April at our farm. Come see what we have to offer. We look forward to your visit.
