Announcement   Shearing day is done and the wool shed is full of fresh fleeces. I am also selling my neighbors Tarhgee x Columbia fleeces, and another neighbors Dorset cross fleeces. I've started evaluations and will get listings in store when I can. Its lambing time too, so lamb and ewe care take priority. Please convo if you are looking for something specific. You can be put on a wish list for specific or random fleece requests for the 2016 season (if available).

Welcome to NEWLAND RANCH on the rolling prairies of southwest Saskatchewan, Canada. Here you will have the opportunity to purchase wool and fiber from individual animals from our little spinner's flock. We strive to give you fast, friendly service and be your source for wool - from sheep who all have names and are part of our family. Your Etsy purchase is helping small eco-friendly farms to continue and this in turn helps agriculture and our planet flourish. Thank you!
*************************************************************************************
I use my Wool Judging Certification to methodically appraise each fleece after shearing. After its evaluation (with detailed notes and photos) each fleece is put into storage until I list it in the store. Besides my own flocks wool, I also select some fleeces from my friends' flocks.
Convo me with questions or to customize an order for you!

About

There's something wonderful about working with wool!

Shortly after acquiring my first flock of sheep and having them sheared, I realized I didn't want their wool exported out of the country in a homogenized boatload. I needed wool for various fiber adventures, so I began the long and wonderful journey of learning to know and use the wool.

Before long I began selling finished yarn and as my knowledge of wool grew, I began selling raw wool too. Over the years, many breeds have come to live here and several different breeding programs have developed purebreds and crosses with unique wool characteristics.

If you don't see what you are looking for, please ask. I have several friends with flocks and they are happy to share. Discover the big wide world of sheep breeds close to home. Canadian sheep breeders grow some of the most extraordinary wool in the world!
