About

Our Farm

Dresow Family Farm is located within the rolling hills of Lonsdale, MN. We have a small flock of Cormo, Cormo cross and Corriedale x Romeldale (CVM) sheep. They are in the company of other livestock and a small herd of free range children. We raise our livestock on locally milled grains, legumes & free choice mineral as well as grasses & clover from our pastures. Our neighbors' farms provide us with bedding. We are working our way towards running a fully sustainable farm.

The Cormo breed was brought to the US via Australia. They are an intentional cross of Superfine Merino and Corriedale. The micron count for the breed is 17-23, which places them in the super fine to fine category. The fleeces that I have had tested range between 17 and 21 microns to date. They are also an excellent meat breed.

The sheep are shorn each spring. I bring the fleeces to nearby Minnesota mills. I love being able to keep my process in MN and local. No chemicals are used to dissolve VM, so there are bits in the yarn. Each skein is rinsed in cold water as the final step so yardage is approximate. Currently I have roving, core spun, worsted , sport & fingering weights. For finished goods we have rugs & dryer balls. The fiber is soft and springy and takes dye well.

Our yarn can be found in local yarn shops (since 2013 ) & in fiber shows in Minnesota, Montana, Wisconsin and South Dakota.

Thanks for browsing and shopping.

    I met Patti at a fiber festival in Montana, she makes beautiful pottery! She had these cute sheep ornaments, which I thought were great craft projects for kids or any sheep or fiber enthusiast; I couldn't resist. I special ordered the ornaments for our farm.
