About me

Gender FEMALE
Occupation shepherd
Location Lords Valley, Poconos, Pennsylvania
Introduction I live on a farm that has been in the Hatton family since 1859. My seven acres used to be home to Finnsheep, a rare breed from Finland. Only a few hundred are registered in the USA every year. Finnsheep are known for large litters of lambs and wool that has a very soft hand and high luster - - very popular with handspinners. I have been spinning the wool from my sheep since the mid-80's. I am no longer breeding Finnsheep, and gave the last of them away last summer. I am in the process of learning what a tremendous thrill it is to put a spinning wheel back in condition to do what it was made for! I probably have a couple of wheels and winders for sale at any given time. Don’t hesitate to ask about them. Also please visit my etsy store http://finnsheep.etsy.com
