We had blue ribbon winning fleece this year at New Hampshire Sheep & Wool Festival. At the 2017 Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival Far View Farm won the very top honor for our wool entries! Our fleeces won the Dual Coated Division. We received ribbons in both the white and the natural colors categories and we won the Overall Show Fleece Champion. This includes the coveted David Hinman Award! We were very excited and grateful.
Every year we enter fleeces in the New England Sheep and Wool Growers FIBER FESTIVAL OF NEW ENGLAND in Springfield, MA . It is usually held in early November. See us there to buy our fleece.
The Icelandic sheep produces a dual coated fleece with a downy inner coat (thel) and a soft, long fibered, outer coat (tog). They are among the most colorful sheep in the world. On our farm we have chocolate browns (moorit), grays of many shades, black, creamy champagne, tans and white. We have many color patterns. Mouflon, badger face, black spotted, and moorit spotted describe some of the patterns. This unique wool is a favorite of fiber enthusiasts.
Raw fleeces are meticulously skirted before we ship. They are available in several natural colors. Perhaps you saw our fleeces at the Big E Fiber Festival of New England on November 7 and 8, 2015. They were under "primitive breeds" or "long fiber" wool.
