Introduction Welcome to the Brigid's Farm Blog. Our farm is located in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. I'm a fiber artist and farmer who raises and works with my own wool and mohair. I raise Border Leicester cross sheep and natural colored angora (mohair) goats. Visit us for updates on the activities here at the farm. The studio at the farm has great views overlooking the brook in 2 directions and up into our woods. Currently 5 looms and a collection of spinning wheels take up space in there. The studio is used primarily as my workshop and for classes that are taught here. Our specialty is natural dyeing. I often use natural dye extracts for both immersion dyeing and surface design techniques. In addition to dyeing, the studio has operated as a production weaving studio since 1979.
