Riverslea Farms

I'm behind on my stash photos, so here you go! When I was at my Mom's house in New Hampshire we went to the local Riverslea Farms. The farm is in Epping, NH.

We stopped to see if there was any wool for sale and Liz, the owner, gave us a fabulous tour of the barns and animals. There were the cutest little ones.

Here are goats and merino sheep! I love their super curly wool. They were very friendly and the farm was well maintained. Each animal had a name and was obviously well cared for.

This little lamb is a Cotswold, apparently very sweet and gentle sheep. She was enjoying a snooze, but let us scratch her ears.

Of course, how could I not buy some yarn after that great tour? Liz told me that this is a natural wool, twisted. They send their wool to a local mill (Maine), where it is processed. This is entirely from their flock and should make a gorgeous pullover. Plus, the yarn is very reasonable. Each skein is around 250 yards and was 7.00 US.

I highly recommend Riverslea Farms and their yarns. Hope you might visit!
