This fiber is from a small farm in Lapeer County Michigan. They have 3 sheep and 2 alpaca that live a life of luxury as beloved pets. We sent the alpaca, clun forest, and cheviot fiber to the Roving Mill to be processed into batts for spinning. You have the choice of buying a 4 oz section of these large commercial batts, or hand pulled roving in 4 oz balls. There is very minimal vm except an occasional piece of wood shaving.
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. We also work with local farms to utilize animal fibers that might otherwise have been thrown away.
