Happy, healthy sheep equals quality wool products
Spelling Tuesday Farm was born in 2011, when Sid and Theresa Stenersen moved from Norway to Theresa’s family farm in the Appalachian mountains of western North Carolina. A few chickens here, a few sheep there has become quite a few chickens there and a small flock of Icelandic sheep that are growing and thriving on the mountainside.
We are committed to giving the animals in our care a good life – our flock of seven sheep have fifteen acres of pasture and a big red barn to sleep in at night. The hay we feed them in the winter is from an adjoining field and their grain - bought from our locally owned feed & seed - comes a family owned company in Statesville, North Carolina committed to high quality products. The flock enjoys (read: argue over) the occasional apple and pumpkin thrown over the fence.
We use a local artisan fiber mill - Morning Star Fiber, located in Andrews, North Carolina - to process some of our wool into yarn. This is what J.C. had to say about our fleeces:
"I don't say this often but everything about this order was amazing! The quality of the Icelandic fleece was some of the best we've ever worked with, the shearing job was done right with no second cuts and the skirting was spot on. It was truly a joy to work with!"
