Yarn for Sale

We have yarn for sale at Schoonover Farm!   They are listed below.  The natural colored is listed first and the hand dyed yarn listed below.  For more information contact me at donnawh@earthlink.net Our 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 fleeces were then sent to Stonehedge Fiber Mill and were processed and spun into 2 ply sport yarn. The resulting yarn is soft but durable and would be well suited for knitting.

      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

    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.

        Donna, can you tell me what the yarn is like. I only know that double coated fleeces have both course and fine fibre. What is this yarn like? By that I mean what does it feel like? It looks very lustrous in the photo…is it? If so that usually means it feels silky.

        We got home from a trip today and I’m going to bed now. I’ll respond tomorrow. Night!

        It is lustrous and silly as well as double coated. I could send you some as a sample if you would like.
