Thanks for stopping in to visit my Etsy shop and welcome to Psalm 23 Farm! I am excited to be able to share my love of spinning, dyeing, and crocheting. I have been spinning since 2003, when I was about 15. All of the wool and mohair is from my flock of (about 60 breeding ewes/does) Reg. Shetland sheep, Shetland crosses (mostly Coopworth) and Reg. Angora goats. Please take a look at my shop's policies, and if you have any additional questions, feel free to convo me!

Shetland sheep are a small, fine boned, primitive (short-tailed) breed of sheep. They have 11 natural colors and a range of wool from very fine, silky and crimpy to a longer double coated fleece. Shetland wool is some of the finest among the UK breeds. It is soft, yet strong and durable, and is a delight to spin. Traditionally, the finest of the Shetland yarns, spun from selected neck wool, were knit into lace shawls so fine they could be drawn through a wedding ring! I am breeding for fine, crimpy, silky fleeced Shetlands and enjoy white as well as the natural colors.

Angora goats are raised primarily for the production of mohair, a specialty natural fiber. Angora goats weight 125-175 pounds & mature does 80-100 pounds, considerably less than other goat breeds. I am breeding for soft locky mohair in both colored and white goats.

Coopworth sheep (breed I use for a crossing sire) are a New Zealand breed developed for production from Romneys and Border Leicesters. Coopworths have a longwool type fleece and the fleece weights 7-12# skirted. The fleece ranges from a med. fine crimpy fleece to a strong, super lustrous locky fleece. The Shetland X Coopworth sheep seem to have a more Coopworth style fleece ranging from med. fine and crimpy to very locky and lustrous. Both the Coopworth and Shetland X Coopworth have a staple of 6-9 in. (most are around 7 in.)
