I spent 25 years as a sheep producer and for much of that time was very involved with producing wool for handspinners. I sold the last of my sheep in 2008 and discontinued my fibre business activities as I switched my focus to academic studies related to my increasing interests in human health care after becoming a PSW in 2004. I have continued to spin some myself, have met regularly in the past few years with members of an informal local fibre artist group, and am a member of the Kingston Handloom Weavers and Spinners guild. My husband and I are planning to sell the farm and move to Vancouver Island in the fall of 2022 to be nearer to two of our daughters. I still have a couple of hundred pounds of both raw and processed wool which I need to deal with before the move. Some will of course be taken with me as I have always thought retirement would give me more time to enjoy working with my fibre. However, it is probably unrealistic to move it all, and it is yet unknown how much space and time I will have out west to learn and develop fibre related crafts. Therefore, I am hoping to sell some of my "stash". I have limited amounts of white and coloured rovings available in a variety of shades and characters which was processed at a few different mills. I also hope to get most of the raw fibre processed or sold. I have been working away at getting it carefully sorted and skirted. I am willing to sell or barter very small or larger quantities of this raw wool to those who might want to "play with" a bit of it, have a more major project in mind, or might want to join with me on a custom processing order. Wellington Fibres has bartered for some of my coloured wool (for use in their blending orders) in exchange for the future processing of some of my fibre. I may be taking wool to Michigan soon to the Frankenmuth Mill to get a large order of "frosted" white and light beige or grey roving processed. Similar roving (which is now out of stock) was my best-selling product. Please click on the topics listed near the top of the page to learn more about Enuff Farm and its products.
