We have commercially spun yarn for sale at Schoonover Farm! They are listed below. For more information contact me at email@example.com
The first yarn is from 7 of our brown Shetland sheep. The sheep are Daphnie, Hansel, Huey, Jemima, Miss Lizzie, Lou and Shaun. These sheep have been well taken care of by us to ensure healthy and clean fleeces. They were carefully sheared, and their fleeces dried. I then skirted the fleeces and selected the best ones to include in this yarn. The 7 fleeces were then sent to Stonehedge Fiber Mill and were processed and spun into 2 ply sport weight yarn. The resulting yarn is soft but durable and would be well suited for knitting. It is $9 per 250 yard/~3.5 ounce skein. Above is a skein of CVM 2 ply fingering yarn also spun by Stonehedge. This is from our CVM ewe we call Mutiny (because of her attitude). She has gorgeous variegated fine crimpy wool which is brown in color. Each skein is 250 yards and weighs ~ 1 ounce. It is available for $9 per skein.
Below we also have mioget katmoget Shetland yarn for sale. This is from our lamb Wendel and our ewe Jemima. This is a mixture of double coated and intermediate style Shetland fleeces. It was spun by Stonehedge Fiber Mill as 2 ply sport weight yarn. It is available for $9 per 250 yarn skein. UPDATE: Only one skein left.
And we have moorit Shetland yarn for sale. This was made from our Shetland ewes Heidi, Miss Lizzie and Amanda. Their intermediate style wool was processed by Stonehedge Fiber Mill into 2 ply sport weight yarn. It is also $9 per 250 yard skein.
I have recently been dyeing some of our light grey or brown Shetland skeins of yarn. I used Koolaid,
food coloring for pastel yarn,
and Cushing’s Perfections Dyes for rainbow
and Coug skeins.
For the Husky skeins, I used Grape Kool-aid and yellow Jacquard acid dye.
Each of these skeins is available for $10 per 250 yards.
