Karakul Sheep Farm in Virgina Creating Rug Yarn

We raise heritage Karakul fat-tailed sheep for their fleece near Washington D.C. We use USA family owned mills to spin the fleece into 4 oz, 2 oz, 4-ply rug yarn. We are the only rug yarn shop to offer grey, browns, black and oatmeal natural yarn colors. Wonderful for backgrounds, and animals.

Custom Dyeing:
Mail a sample to match your wool fabric for whipping yarns. I can custom dye up to 3 to 8 shades of any single yarn color. Punchers - you can create Pearl McGown shading with yarns! I love to help color plan rugs. I have a dye studio to teach dyeing on the farm. Karakul accepts dye beautifully. Proven by centuries of Persian woven carpets that wear forever.

Oxford Punch Needle Certified Instructor since 2014.
I love teaching punch! I offer classes on the farm, at hook-ins, fiber festivals, guild meetings, yarn shops and upon request. I offer all levels of Oxford punch classes. Driving or visiting northern Virginia? Come visit our sheep, Rug Shop and see a demo or take a beginner class. Our 100-year-old home is fun to see. Our 50 mile eastern view from top of the mountain is spectacular. Expect days we are in a cloud!
