We live in Wallingford, Vermont in a beautiful valley with lush meadows and a view of the Green Mountains. Crafting unique felted sculptures and rugs while raising a heritage sheep breed, Cotswold, is a labor of love that our family has been undertaking for over 3 decades. Sheep create the ultimate eco-friendly sustainable products. They eat low maintenance material (grass and hay) and convert it into fabulous fleece that can be felted, knitted, crocheted or woven into natural clothing, blankets, and ornaments.
My family and I spend long hours taking care of the sheep. There is feeding, watering, changing pastures, hoof trimming, and lambing to name a few. Making the felting creations also takes many hours. I do not have the time to wash or dye my wool.
We wanted to share where we obtain our supplies so that others who want to work with wool will have a chance to purchase quality material. We will still offer our own fleece and roving; now you will have the opportunity to purchase Ashford products. Over the years I have found that Ashford offers a superior, consistent product that allows crafters to develop their creations with less frustration and better results.
