Native of Vermont, I live just about as north as you can go before crossing the Canadian border. My husband and I raise Icelandic sheep and also make maple syrup on our 150 acre farm. Hard work, but plenty of accomplishments.
It's been an interesting journey from former software engineer to fiber artist and farmer. Now I wash, card, and spin my own wool from my own sheep and alpacas. My "co-workers" I call them. Okay. I admit it. Most of them are my "Lover-dubbers". They loved to be scratched and brushed, talked to, told how beautiful they are. In return, they give me so much more than fiber. They give me a way of life that a lot of people long for.
After a year with sheep, I took up spinning my own sheep's wool - a wonderful experience! It's not just another bag of roving for me, it's Gracie, or Venus, or Harry, or Ricardo…
