I had no experience with this breed of wool, and being a 2D needle felt artist specializing in animal portraits I am always looking for wool batt that has great animal colors. And wow, I hit the jackpot when I found My Little Sheep! The little batts are done so the pull apart into small little pieces without being hairy or stringy, and it’s so lofty and rich feeling. I’m looking forward to using this beautiful wool in my next portrait…and will be buying more right away! I hope you’ll dye more animal colors so I can have a full palette of this lovely wool one day! Thank you!!!

This wool is gorgeous and natural. There’s nothing synthetic about it. Came with a sample of another kind of wool too! I will be buying from here again.

Babydoll Southdown is such a unique wool that adds unique texture to my needle felted sculptures. Service is always great from this shop — I’ll definitely be back!
Where the wool begins with healthy and content sheep!
This story started with My Little Sheep. When I brought home my first Babydoll Southdowns in 2005, their charming personalities quickly wove their way into my heart. Before long, they led me on a wonderful fiber journey, full of delightful twists, turns, and still no end in sight. They patiently taught me how intertwined the lives of the sheep and the shepherdess are. As I give them thoughtful care in a natural (yet protective and nurturing) environment, they reciprocate with wonderful wool, adorable lambs, and long productive lives. It is a simple (and at the same time, complex) concept that continues to intrigue me.
When I learned to spin, I began managing the flock with a high emphasis on fleece quality. It has been exciting to see the improvements in their wool through the years!
As a knitter, I understand the time and effort put into a project. So the yarns I design are ones I love to work with myself...ever-changing colors to keep each stitch enjoyable; yarns that turn even plain stockinette into an expressive creation...a work of art. I often ask myself, "How would a beginner's scarf look if this yarn were used?" In today's world of mass-produced commercial garments, we want our hand made knits to be Quite Different, don't we? I hope you enjoy using the yarns as much as I've enjoyed making them.

The shepherdess to a sweet flock of Babydoll Southdown sheep. I spin, dye, weave and knit with their wool. My quest is to create unique yarns with ever-changing colors so even simple stitches appear complex, original, and beautiful.

Very adept at creating wool from grass. Also give inspiration and encouragement through their daily interactions with me.
