Lambs fleece reservation and processing
Reserve your lambs wool fleece for the fall.
Have you wanted to become more connected with your fiber, knowing the animal who grew it, learning about how to take it from the animal and turn it into a finished product? This fleece reservation allows you to do just that. You can select a time to come visit the lambs, or have a virtual tour and selection, where you can pick out the fleece you would like for the fall. Once the fall or late summer shearing is here, you will be welcomed to come to shear day and hold your new fleece. If you are not able to make it to shear day, we can set up a virtual opportunity or I can take pictures and videos. After shearing I will teach you how to skirt your fleece, wash it, and finally process it. You will have the opportunity to wash here at the farm if you would like or I can wash it for you. You will also have the opportunity to have me process it into roving, batting, or handspun yarn (for an additional fee) or you can use my small picker, carder, and a loaner spinning wheel. If you are not in my area and are unable to make it to the farm, I will send pictures of your fleece as it is processed if you wish, or I can send the raw or washed fleece to you.
This is a great opportunity to get to know the animal who grew your clothes, as well as to gain the skills to process fleeces in the future.
