20 New Colors of M ohair Roving

20 New Colors of Mohair Roving

We just got back our new Mohair Roving. It is very interesting because it is the first time I dyed using softer less bright colors . All of the various colors blend with each other and form a wonderful wearable palette. I can't wait to start making Mohair Batts. Watch our web site for these new colors I may also post some for sale on ETSY but you can always buy from the farm web site. Contact me if you need information or something special.


I'm Back From The RHS Chelsea Flower Show

I have always wanted to see the much admired Chelsea Flower Show in London and I got to go this month. I also went to see Great Dixter Gardens, the gardens of Christopher Lloyd and Sissinghurst, the gardes of Vita Sackville-West. If you are gardeners you will know the signifance of these world famous gardens.

My favorite was Great Dixter. You can't believe the way that man has planted layers of plants. Yes, Layers! He has early blooms and right throught them come June flowers and next in the same spot, without removing anything at all come the summer blooms and next the fall things. I just can't believe the number of plants that can grow in the same space when planted at different levels underground. This I am going to try in my English Cottage Garden. I have to do some research into Christopher Lloyds literature on gardening. I will try to post photos of my garden as it develops.

Sheep Yes, I visited some sheep breeders also. I saw hundreds of sheep in gently rolling pastures in the Kent area. Great animals! Still like my Cormos and California Reds better.



Lambing 2010 Is Completed

We completed out 11 year of lambing in early May. There are now about 25 beautiful lambs running around in the pasture with our Guard Llama. These Cormos and California Reds are waiting to be bought by new owners. If you are interested please contact me at
