Happy New Year everyone!!!!
Life has been busy on the farm this past Fall! We were super busy with so many events and shows at the end of 2021.
Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair (SAFF)
SAFF was amazing as always. We did well but unfortunately most of the sheep came back with pinkeye and we have been battling that since Halloween. We have the last few of them in the barn and they’re looking like they’re on the mend. That being said, I don’t think we will be competing this year. Way too much time and money go into getting them well, and besides this is the year we will be vendors at the fiber fairs! We're still determining which ones we'll attend but as soon as I find out y’all will be the first to know.
We are taking a break from breeding the Shetlands this year and will be focusing on our Leicester Longwool (LL) flock. Humphrey, our white LL ram, has been with his 3 ladies since October: Melly, a white LL yearling, and Ri and Ro our two natural-colored yearlings. Fingers crossed we will start looking for lambs in March but considering how warm our Fall was it may be later.
New Products Coming Soon
A few weeks ago, we took our fleeces to the mill in TN and we will soon have a new batch of yarn and roving for you! This will be our first time offering our LL roving and, hopefully, a little LL yarn too. We are also blending our Satin Angora (SA) bunny wool with both the Shetland and LL wool in this new batch. SA makes the yarn billowy and warm. We are very excited to bring these to new items to you so watch your inbox for the release dates!
Also, coming this quarter we will be focusing on our kits. Kits will include yarn of your choice, needles, and a pattern. The current projects we have to offer are a pair of fingerless gloves, a cap, and a gorgeous shawl! Stay tuned this winter as we will have those in our online store soon!
Check our Goods menu. We're adding new items all month long in January!
Thank you for signing up for our mailing list! It has been growing quickly. This gives us a chance to let you know about all the things "growing" on around here. To celebrate, we are excited about our first sale this year!
For the month of January, we are offering 22% off our yarn in honor of the New Year.
Be sure to stock up while the savings are big!
Also, a special thank you to my dear friend Susan who takes care of our online store! She’s amazing and we couldn’t do this without her.
Happy Winter everyone!
