TOUR de FLEECE SALE:
These samplers have been reduced from $25.00.

We have teamed up with our friends and neighbors, the Fitzwilliam Fiber Farms Collaborative to offer you a sampling of locally grown New Hampshire wool and alpaca. This collaborative includes Steeple Chase Farm, Mini Hill Farm and Stonewall Fields Alpaca Farm, all of Fitzwilliam New Hampshire.

After test spinning a number of their crossbred and blended fibers we selected 5 rovings to create a collection which includes Border Leicester, Cormo, Romney, Corriedale, Rambouillet, Icelandic and alpaca. We also wanted to include five natural colors to enhance your opportunity to use them in a small colorwork project.

This sampler pack includes one ounce of each of the following:

Cormo/Alpaca/Romney Blend (white)
Border Leicester/Corriedale Cross from Lillian (brown)
Rambouillet/ Corriedale cross (chocolate brown) from "Inky" and "Andrea"
Romney (grey/Brown)
Icelandic/Alpaca Blend (tan)
and of course, one of our lavender sachets

The sampler is beautifully packaged in a rustic burlap bag which has been hand stenciled by Peg with a sheep and star or heart border . The bag measures 12" by 14" and certainly can be put to great use as a project bag.

This wool has all been processed chemically free using environmentally responsible techniques. Gentle processing retains much of the fiber's natural softness and sheen. Bits of stray vegetable matter may be present which can easily be removed during the spinning process.

The last photo shows a simple colorwork hat I created using roving from this sampler pack.


Please leave a note to seller if you prefer heart or star border stenciled on your bag.

UPDATE: Lillian, the border leicester/Corriedale cross, gave birth to twins on Easter Sunday. One white ram lamb and one black ewe lamb.
