We are enjoying the beautiful lambs our girls delivered this year. If you are considering a spinning flock or adding to your flock we have lambs with luscious fleeces.

Registered Finnsheep rams are available this year, white and multicolored with great fleeces and conformation. They would be a welcome addition to your flock. The Finnsheep will add prolificacy, soft fleeces, and handling ease to your flock.

Lambs,Yarn, and Carolina FiberFest – Oh My!

Wow! The farm is so busy. Pinkie was the first to lamb yesterday with triplets. She is a good mom and they are doing fine.  Two are white and one is black and grey like his father.  They are about one hour old in this picture.  Stay tuned for lambing updates.

Pinkie and Triplets

We are dyeing yarn from our newest selection. It is a luscious, cushy DK weight, knits like a dream (so well in fact that I may give up spinning…haha) and takes dye in any color. Join us on the 27th from 10-3 at the Red Barn Studio for our monthly Spin/Knit/Crochet In to feel the cushiness!
