Did We Do?
Sheep on the Left...Wool on the Right
P.S. If you've purchased sheep or wool from us, please leave a review on facebook or send one via e-mail. I would love to include it on this page.

I freaking love this wool. It's so sproingy!!! And you did an excellent job scouring it as well.
Amy purchased 4 oz. of Bexhill's scoured fleece.

I love Haven's fleece! It's once again washed up lovely, soft and
fluffy ... and the staples are not at all tender. I will comb the
longer staples and hand card the shorter ones. Thank you! :))

This year I purchased Bexhill, Beauford and Marylou as fiber animals (and adored pets) to add to my small flock from Michelle Schubert. First off I cannot say enough about how thoughtful, kind and knowledgeable Michelle is: she took the time to answer a number of lengthy emails from me. I was easily able to schedule an appointment to visit her farm and while there to view Beauford I saw the other two wooly darlings and Michelle consented to sell them to me. (Bexhill had some amazing wool at this years Kentucky Fiber Festival also). I even got a great deal on a spinning wheel from her so win win for me :) If you haven't purchased from her before I would consider it...I got all the paperwork..a huge sack of feed her husband carried for me (since I'm not able to lift anything heavy), tons of information in a handy folder which I've added to my four books on sheep so there is nothing I can say other than I'm thrilled......happy as a clam at high tide with my sheep and their breeder. She even delivered them for me as my husband wasn't going to be home to help me pick them up. So 5 stars all the way for this farm!!
Cate purchased 2 adult sheep (1 ewe & 1 wether) and 1 lamb.

A few weeks back I posted that I was buying a scarf from Michelle Schubert, who raises Babydoll sheep. She shears them, processes the wool, and then spins, dyes, and weaves wonderful creations. I have been meaning to post photos of the scarf, with which I am THRILLED!! But my photos aren't as good as hers. So I am borrowing the first pic from her -- it's one she took before she shipped it. The other two show some of the details (I took them, so any fault is mine). I highly recommend her if you are wanting something handmade and fabulous! You can see more photos of my scarf on her page here
You can click on the "Simply Wool Shoppe" link on the upper left and see what she has for sale. She sells wool and yarn as well. I know I will be ordering from her again!!!

Michelle Schubert - I so appreciated your advice on this when it was discussed previously. I did purchase these tags you recommended from Premier and used them for this year's lambs. I absolutely love them and would highly recommend them. I previously used the free metal ones and those type have fallen out of many of my sheep. These plastic ones from Premier are great for many reasons. They can be printed on both the front and back of the tag. After healing, they turn loosely in the ear (kind of like a woman's pierced earrings) which I think helps keep them from being pulled out. It is made from a nice soft flexible plastic, not hard and stiff. If you use Gene Check, they fit right into that same hole on the ear. My favorite thing though is the resounding "pop" sound it makes when the male part of the tag has gone through the ear and connected with the female part. Then you know for sure that the insertion is completed. With the old metal tags, I could never really tell if I had pressed it hard enough to stay in which I think caused me to probably press too hard and probably hurt the animal more.

Thanks. I'm glad to hear that at least Pop's twins are doing well. I washed her fleece right after you mailed it and couldn't decide whether to dye it or not (that and I didn't have much experience with the shorter fibers, so I wanted to build up the spinning skills first). Anyway, a few weeks ago I finally decided to leave her fleece all natural and started spinning samples. I hope that her lambs inherited her fleece, it's so nice to spin!
Jess purchased a raw fleece.

All I can say is thanks. Your fleece has been wonderful!
