Whispering Pines Shetland Sheep - NEW in 2019
Saturday, October 17, 2020
10:00 AM - 2:00 PM (EDT)
We are breeders of fine wool shetland sheep. Fine wool shetlands have an afd of around 25 microns or less, and have very tight organized crimp. Their fiber is ideal for next to skin projects and items which benefit from elasticity - like socks, hats and gloves. All the fiber products in our booth are from our flock, and most products are hand processed by me. Products available in our booth include raw fleeces, hand carded batts of wool, hand spun yarn, as well as mill processed roving and yarn. We carry the Majacraft line of wheels and equipment, and will have wheels in the booth to try and purchase. We are participating breeders in the Livestock Conservancy Shave Em to Save Em campaign - passport stickers will be available in our booth. Spinners, knitters and crocheters love the bouncy softness of the wool from our soft shetlands - I am looking forward to introducing our wool to the many visitors at the NY Sheep and Wool festival! #Self raised #complete farm product #softshetlandwool #self-raised
