Raw fleece, mohair, batts & yarn - homegrown & handmade

Bryant, Alabama | 276 Sales

Announcement    Welcome to Poppy Creek Farm!
I find infinite beauty in nature, and I love to capture the simple perfection of natural, raw fleece in my rovings, batts and yarns.
Fleeces are grown here on my farm on top of Sand Mountain, then hand sheared by me and carefully processed by hand, no chemicals or milling. I prepare my fleeces carefully; each one is individually crafted to retain the character, structure and integrity of the natural look!
"Barn To Yarn" really sums up my ethos and the products you will find here.
I enjoy hand preparing the fleeces and rovings, because it allows me to build upon the crimp and natural curl of the fleeces that can be lost in the commercial milling process.
I think you will love the natural beauty of these fibers as much as I do.

These guys are busy making magic - turning grain and hay into fabulous fleeces!
From Barn to Yarn! My angora goats are hand sheared by me, and then I carefully wash, dye and card the mohair.

On Etsy since 2010

When I look at a raw fleece, whether it is wool, alpaca or mohair, I see the miracle of Mother Nature. This creature lives outside, grows this wool over the course of a year, and somehow it is still soft and perfect and something that we fiber artists love to craft into beautiful wearable art.
Helping my fiber animals to grow amazing fleeces is something that I am entirely immersed in day to day, providing quality feed and hay, ensuring that everyone has shelter and somewhere comfortable to be away from the weather - whether that's -10f or 105f! - and assisting them in raising the next generation of fiber producers.
I live and breathe this beautiful chaos, and out of it comes the raw fleece that is crafted into fiber art that I can't believe I am lucky enough to have had a hand in creating.
For daily pictures from the farm, follow me on Instagram, @poppycreekfarmermama.
This shop features fleeces, wool and batts produced, processed and dyed by me right here on the farm. For yarn, all hand spun by me, please see my other store, Poppy Creek Yarn, which can he found at https://www.etsy.com/shop/PoppyCreekYarn.
