|We're glad you are here! We offer a fine selection of fleece and fibers from Michigan grown sheep and goats.
Our livestock produce silky mohair and fluffy wool for fly tying material, spinners' roving, comforter batting, felted hats, coin purses or cell phone covers, handspun and custom spun yarns and hand knitted scarves, ponchos, sweaters, baby blankets, socks and shawls. Here's a little vignette about the farm by Kat Peterson, State News Reporter. She visited us in January 2011.
We've moved toward a finer fleece by welcoming Bob, the Moorit California Veriegated Mutant ram to our farm. Our 2012 lamb crop is 50/50 Merino crossed with corriedaleXwenslydale and 100 % Merino bred to Bob. We were fortunate enough to have 35 lambs join the farm this year, five of which are staying on the farm - fine looking natural color and white.
