Beautiful fiber: soft and lovely blending. I was looking for fiber from loved, humanely treated critters and am so glad to find you. I received the package the same day I got the message it was mailed! Love shopping local and will be back. Thank you!
Sauked In Farm is a "fleeceful place" in the Pacific Northwest where we grow wool, one day at a time.
At Sauked In Farm we raise Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep and turn their wool into spinning fiber and yarn. To find out more about these small heritage-breed sheep, visit www.saukedinfarm [!at] gmail.com
I discovered spinning about 10 years ago and have been obsessed with fiber ever since.
Another fiber I find fascinating is Olde English Babydoll Southdown sheep wool as the locks are completely different than Alpaca. In 2011 I have just purchased five of these darling sheep so that I now have my own little flock for a constant wool supply and the sale of lambs in the future. The Babydoll fiber is short-stapled and the crimp is so tight that an individual fiber looks like a corkscrew, yet it is fine and soft like the Alpaca.
These are the two fibers that I focus on, but like all Fiberholics, I enjoy working with all the fabulous fleeces that are out there. Every day is an adventure to create something new and beautiful.
