Well… we’re still muddling along without electric on half of the farm, but we decided to celebrate Independence Day with you. It’s a Give-Away! We introduced these Sheeps and Peeps Farm tees at our Open House and now have them available in our Etsy shop
. The graphic was designed and hand-drawn by local artist, Marceline Mason.
You could be the lucky recipient of your choice of a Sheeps and Peeps Farm tee – available in adult, youth or toddler – or an infant onsie. Just comment on this post and a winner will be chosen by random number generator.
Comments will be closed on Sunday at 10 p.m.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!
Comments are closed… winner will be announced shortly!
No don’t get excited… no lambs until April here on the farm. We thought we would start a series of posts sharing some of the wonderful fiber art that our customers produce from our fleeces.
And of course, it all starts with the sheep; in this case, with little Miss 1133 (above right); out of Athena and Poseidon. Following a summer of loving care and a whole lot of growing, she was sheared in the fall. The locks of her fleece were 5 inches long and it weighed a whopping 3 lbs 5 ozs after skirting. A very nice size for a lambs’ fleece. We sold it on Etsy to Knox Farm Fiber. (This is the second fleece purchased from us. We love our repeat customers!)
And here is the lovely yarn that Judith produced from little Miss 1133’s fleece – washing, dyeing, picking, carding and spinning. Judith describes herself as a yarn-maker, and indeed she makes beautiful yarn. You can read more about Knox Farm Fiber here
. And more about her handspun bulky yarn here
It is such a joy to see the beautiful things that our wonderful fiber artist customers craft from our wool! We thought you might enjoy it too.
We have been busy in the fiber room. Keep an eye on our shop for updates this week.
