Romeldale CVM Sheep
In 2011 we added the first sheep to our farm, the endangered Romeldale CVM. We brought home one CVM ram, White Barn Farm Swifty, and four white Romeldale ewes.
Romeldale CVM is known for being next to the skin soft, beautiful crimp, and extreme loft. The breed standard calls for a micron count of 21-25 microns. They are currently classified as Threatened by The Livestock Conservancy.
Handspun CVM and Angora 50/50 Blend Yarn
This wool is from the first lamb born on our farm, Zephyr Creek Tia. Our Shepard blended this beautiful natural grey wool with our homegrown Chestnut Angora fiber. The blend gives both the loft that CVM is known for, and the pure luxury of angora.
In 2019 The Livestock Conservancy will be running a Shave 'EM to Save 'EM promotion for knitters, crocheters, weavers, and all fiber artist to promote the use of rare breed wools.
Zephyr Creek Farm utilizes regenerative agriculture techniques to heal the land. Our sheep live on pasture year round, utilizing holistic grazing during the growing season and bale grazing during the winter. Our passion is sustainable fibers and textiles.
