Collaborative Fiber Farming
Fitzwilliam Fiber Farms is a women’s agricultural collaborative. They are all shepherds with each farm focusing on their chosen breed & committing to improvement of their flock and fiber. The farms work well together in supportive ways including helping problem solve. The women each bring new ideas and experiences to the table so that they learn and are better able to achieve goals. Sometimes help is given to each other on shearing days and in transporting fiber to be processed. Read more about them on the VT Sheep & Wool Festival website.
Wind Ridge Farm is a small farm in Ashburnham, MA with a focus on Teeswater sheep, which dates back to the Romans. Teeswaters are wonderful mothers, friendly and of a sweet nature. I am enamored with their locks & the luster of their fiber. Bringing them into my existing flock has improved fiber quality and size of my sheep.
I am excited to share yarns from these sheep.
My focus at Wind Ridge Farm is on the Teeswater sheep, which dates back to the Romans. They are wonderful mothers, friendly and of a sweet nature. I am enamored with their locks & the luster of their fiber. This year I am offering some of their fleeces for sale. Now is your chance to get to know the fiber of the Teeswater, considered to have the finest lustre long wool in the world. It has no kemp, no coarse hairs and is generally in locks. Check it out.
