Shearing of March of 2013
I am very pleased and excited to offer you a membership in my 2013 CSA. This is my 5th offering of a yarn CSA. The previous 4 years were successful and my customers were very pleased with the resulting yarn. I am tickled with the outcome of the yarn and the whole CSA in general and I am happy to report I have repeat customers.

Below is the information on my CSA. Please do not hesitate to ask questions!

This purchase entitles you to one share of Serenity Sheep Farm's 2013 shearing. Your share will include a variety of natural colored wool yarn in whites, browns, blacks and gray. It could be 12 skeins or as many as 15.
Please know that by purchasing a membership in this CSA, you are contributing to all the expenses related to the entire farming operation, much the same way a traditional CSA buys seeds and implements to run theirs. Shearing alone can be a big expense, feed in the winter is another.
We raise Shetland and Shetland Romney X sheep here on 40 acres of the original 160 acre homestead. The land has been in the family since the early 1900's. By purchasing a share in the CSA, you are helping to insure the land stays a working farm and remains in the family, not sold off and subdivided like so many around us. Times are changing and so are the ways of making farming work. This is our second offering of a fiber CSA.
We are proud to be using a lot of the same techniques that my husband's grandfather used, although we do farm with a tractor and not horses.

You may have noticed the shine in the skeins above. That's not camera magic, it REALLY DOES SHINE! This is some of the softest wool you'll ever put next to your skin, perfect for socks, scarves and sweaters. I believe the Shetland crossed with the Romney is the reason for the luster. Becky at the mill thinks so too.
I would love to send you a small sample of my yarn. We only use 13 Mile wool mill. The mill is just 7 miles from my home and that saves a tremendous amount on shipping costs and in turn fossil fuels. Becky uses a solar system on her 100 + year old barn to heat the water for washing the wool. We are proud to support a local business like hers.


If you are a hand spinner and prefer raw fleece or roving instead of yarn, just make a note of that and we can make provisions. You will be shipped a total of 10 lbs (or the closest equivalent) of raw, whole fleece. *Shipping will be more for raw wool.* I am happy to calculate roving for you as well. I've not had a request for roving yet and haven't crunched the numbers on weights.
If I should receive more requests for raw fleece than yarn, I will close the memberships at that time in order to insure you your wool.

We must add a disclaimer that there may be unforeseen circumstances that are beyond our control. We cannot be responsible for natural disasters or nature in general. But there's not much chance of tornadoes here. :-)


Please check out my feedback from previous wool buyers.

Please note that all of our animals have the best treatment here at Serenity Sheep Farm. All are grown in a sustainable manner with the best interest of the animal and the land coming first. Although not certified organic, we do everything we can to raise all animals here by organic standards, consequently we have very happy animals! Just look at those sweet faces!

We encourage visitors to the farm to see how we do things here and view the animals for themselves. If you care to stay overnight, we have an antique sheep wagon available for that.
