Shearing Days

The spring harvest of sheep’s wool has started and we are more than pleased with the wonderful wool our sheep have been growing for the past year ! To date 100 ewes, ewe lambs and ram lambs have been sheared, their beautiful covered fleeces skirted and stashed away in our wool room. New friends Mariepaule and Arturo gave us a helping hand with the shearing joined by our shearer Jeff and farms workers Margot and Gleb. Now our task is to sort through our wool and decide which fleeces to use for our own yarn and roving and which to offer for sale. The first show of the season will be here soon — The Chancellor’s Sheep and Wool Showcase at Clermont in April. We’ll have a number of our natural colored and white wool fleeces for sale as well yarn, roving and other Complete Farm Products™.
