We are two Loudoun County, Virginia shepherds who love wool. We hand select fleeces from small farms in the Chesapeake watershed region to create
really great yarn and roving. Imagine different grapes making really different wines...wool is like that. Different types of wool are wonderful
for different end uses. We hope you find a wool you love, or maybe one that surprises you.
