Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) fiber & products
When you join our Fiber CSA, you make an investment in our diversified farm. Members choose the type of share they want, i.e. a spinner’s share, a felter’s share, or a yarn share (see descriptions below). You can choose the fiber by name from your favorite sheep at the next shearing, which happens twice a year. The fiber can be processed according to your request so you get the product you want, including raw or washed fleece, wool to spin or for felting, mill-spun yarn, either natural or hand-dyed. The quantity of fiber in each share is based on current retail prices in the store, and totals $100 worth of fiber. You can choose your fiber project by project or all at one time. If you live too far away to shop at the farm store, we are happy to ship products to you (you pay the shipping costs).
