About

I live in Germany on a small farm with Icelandic horses, sheep and goats.

I do not breed and do not kill my sheep. Up to 2009 I milked my sheep and made cheese for sale. To have milk the animals have to get lambs every year and the lambs have to be slaughtered after some time because you cannot keep them all and nobody wants them alive. I could not bear this any more, so I stopped making cheese.
Now I work a lot with children, schools, kindergarten. The children learn many things about sheep, they can pet them and work with their wool.

I also have a new blog, this is German and English: http://woolshepherdess.blogspot.com/

For most of my objects I use the wool of my own sheeps, these are East Frisean milk sheeps, Wensleydales, Gotland-Wensleydale-crossbreeds and one Scottish Blackface. But I also buy some other fibers to have a bigger assortment.

I really love to work with the wool from my own sheep. You have a special relation to the fiber, when you know the animal where it comes from. And I would be very happy, if you like my yarns, too.

I love to combine a lot of different fibers in my yarns and I love to combine knitting and felting in my objects.
