Good earthy sheep fleece as advertised. Good strong fibers.

Another fleece Deborah accidentally washed, and did not charge me for the washing. Thank you. This has not been as nice as the others as the lightest fibers are breaking in the middle. The midtones and darks are beautiful and strong, and I still feel I received a good value.

As described, a non coated sheep. Deborah accidentally washed it and did not charge me for the washing. It has combed up nicely, all the dander and VM just fell out.

About

Old Man Wool Farm and Ewespun Fiber Mill

Old Man Wool Farm is named after a dorset ram we had when I was a kid. He lived to 14 years. The Old Man would spend most of the year with the cows pushing them around, butting heads and generally bullying them. About August, each year, he would suddenly remember he was a sheep and had a duty to perform. It was a sad day when he passed on.

OMWF now raises heritage breed karakul and romeldale sheep, about 40 total. Also, the farm has llamas, geese, angora rabbits, dogs, cats and me, the Chief Manure Officer.

In 2012 I purchased a vintage commercial carder and picker. It took over a year to repair the machine and get it working. In August of 2013, the first wool ran through the card and Ewespun Fiber Mill was born. Most of the fibers I carry in my shop have been run through this 1929 Davis and Furber card.

In addition to farming and carding, I work half time as a special education teacher at a local alternative school.

    In August, 2012, I bought a 1929 Davis and Furber Carding Machine. A year later, after moving, repairs and maintenance, we ran our first wool through the card and Ewespun Fiber Mill at Old Man Wool Farm was born.
