These fleeces have been dried, skirted, judged, weighed and photographed.  We raise mostly Shetland sheep. We also have a CVM, California Red, Gotland-Finns, and a Cotswold.  We also have some fiber goats-  two Nigoras. Finally we have Satin Angora rabbits.  We lovingly raise these animals and sheared them with care.  We are located in Skagit County, Washington State.  The lock photos are taken on 3×5 inch cards.

Please email me at donnawh@earthlink.net if you have any questions about these fleeces.  And, if you have not already, please check out our yarn page at Yarn for Sale and our roving page at Roving for Sale.  I will be posting the roving and yarn I receive from the mills on those pages when I receive them. Thanks for visiting!
