The yarn on this page was spun from local merino sheep. We were so excited to find out a local farmer was raising merino sheep which normally don't do very well in our Appalachian climate (much like Irish/British Isles climate where they also don't do well).
Wellspring Farm is located in Burnsville in western North Carolina is a fiber animal farm raising llamas, Jacob Sheep, Merino, Tunis and Tunis/corriedale sheep for their fiber. Products produced on the farm include rovings, yarns and felted, knit and crocheted fiber items and breeding stock. They offer farm tours, workshops, and lessons in spinning and fiber arts.
Farmer Elke, pictured here with her llamas, dyes these lovely yarns.
