I have a lofty dream of having my own flock of sheep some day. I live on a piece of property and can totally imagine a healthy flock browsing in the pasture. And yet, I am not naive and I recognize the immense responsibility and commitment having animals would be. For now, I am happy to meet farmers, talk to them about their experiences, buy their wool and continue my study of different sheep breeds and fibers. A some day dream. Gotta build that fence first!
A few years back while searching for raw fleece for a hand spinning project I met a local shepard who raises the finest of white and colored merino sheep. I'm excited and proud to feature this wool in my upcoming yarn line, Heartland.
