Yarn for Sale

We have commercially spun yarn for sale at Schoonover Farm!   They are listed below.  For more information contact me at donnawh@earthlink.net

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.

      Hello Ethel,

      We do not have paper catalogs, just what is on the web site. Thank you for the compliment. And let me know if you have any other questions. I do have more yarn available other than what is shown so if you have a particular color or yarn weight you would like, let me know.

    Ok, disregard my previous request on Hazelnut’s fleece – I think I’d rather have a couple of skeins of the brown shetland instead (from the top of the page.) Would you let me know how much the yarn plus shipping would be for two skeins to Idaho, 83201? Thanks! Teresa

    I am interested in two skeins of the Calif Red sheep yarn. I have been curious about this breed and about its fiber for awhile. I’d like to try knitting with it. I am in Santa Cruz CA 95065. Would you contact me through my email? Thank you. You have a lovely farm and a lovely LIFE! 🙂

    Hi Donna,
    Can you tell me if you have Shetland yarn, preferably sport weight in natural colours – cream, black, or grey?
    I live in British Columbia – is that a problem to ship?

      Hello Patricia,
      I have sport weight Shetland yarn in a light grey and a medium brown. The brown is not light enough to call cream colored. The California Red yarn I have is cream colored. It is not a problem to ship to BC.

    Hello, Patricia,
    I saw your site through going site hopping, and thought wow, that is so cool. I once lived out on Lopez Island, and I have got to say that Washington state is truly God’s country. Anyway, do you ever have any of you lighter colored wool spun into fingering wt, or even lace wt? I ask,because I do quite a bit of lace knitting. Many thanks, in advance, for reading this, and replying.

      Hello Peggy,

      Yes. It is $250 per day. Currently we have 15 goats. We bring portable electric fencing and our camper van to watch over them. So we need to be able to set up these items and there can not be poisonous plants. Let me know if you are still interested.
