Keeping Sheep: Raising Your Own Icelandic Sheep

Foxes, Geese and.. Our Favorite Mittens Are BACK!! No more haunting ebay for a used copy!

Icelandic Sheep, Icelandic Fleece, Icelandic Roving & Wool Yarn...  Welcome to our Maine Icelandic Sheep Farm!

Our wool comes from our beautiful lambs and adult sheep.. our blends are the result of careful selection of fibers from other New England farmers and exotics from our exclusive sources. Our wool is soft, light, and airy.

We do our own dyeing from acid fast dyes. Acid fast dyes give us a vast array of light-fast colors without requiring the toxic metal mordants. We sell most of our dyed yarns at the shows we attend. This year you'll find us at the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival at the beginning of September, and Rhinebeck New York State Sheep and Wool Festival in mid-October. If you've never been to the Rhinebeck show it is a pilgrimage for fiber freaks and I highly recommend it!

We can email you a list of our in stock wools, including the special blends and current rovings.  Below is a list of "always in stocks" but this is just the tip of the wool sack, so to speak.  If you're interested in our "soft, loft, and squishies" or our colored yarns, email or call (207-793-4640) We also have Warp for Weavers, let us know if you're interested and we'll bring it to a show.

Sport Weight 100% Icelandic Wool
Soft and lovely this is our natural colors, handmilled for the look and feel of a fine handspun, then gently washed to set the twist and loft the fiber. Socks, scarves, mittens, just imagine.. ~75 yds/ 1 oz.

Our sport weight is 225 yards (approx 3 oz). A minimum order (per color) is 3 ounces (an average skein), the Farm at Morrison Corner says "2 skeins make 2 pairs of mittens if you reverse the base and top colors!  The same is true of socks.

If you think in skeins, multiply the number of skeins you need by 3 to get the number of ounces you need. In Stock $9/skein.. order by the skein, minimum order 1 skein, to order email or call (207-793-4640)
