Harvesting Fiber

A by-product of using prescribed grazing on our farm is sustainable wool. Our sheep and llama not only help sequester carbon back into the ground, they also produce fiber while reducing our farm’s carbon footprint. Wool is a natural fiber created through the cycle of photosynthesis from solar energy, carbon dioxide and water which nourishes plants.

Our yarn is available for sale at Avenue Yarns in Albany, CA. We have partnered with this wonderful neighborhood full service knitting store. Do visit and pick up a skein of our Romney or Finn luscious cream yarn and handmade amigurumi animal keychains crocheted by our team. All proceeds go towards supporting the farm’s mission.

About our fiber:
Our animals are an integral part of our carbon farming practices. They graze on the plants, produce protein fibers through the growth of their wool, and they are shorn seasonally to harvest their fiber. We process our fiber at Valley Oak Wool Mill, an independently run and woman-owned business in Woodland, CA. Our fiber is certified by Fibershed as sustainable and Climate Beneficial.
