Lambs Have Started Arriving

Lambing has started early at the farm this year.
The first lamb was a girl from our black Romeldale ewe, Blackberry, who arrived January 27th.

Two weeks later the second lamb was born, a boy from Paris our favorite white Romeldale ewe.

Felted Gift Baskets

We have just completed an order for one of our regular customers for a set of 24 felted bowls for customer gift baskets. The gift baskets were made up with a couple of jars of di Orto jelly by Sue De Paulo, one of them a Carmine grape jelly. The basket also included, Oregon filberts and with other locally made treats.

Here is a sampling of the felted bowls. The bowls have a different pattern on the inside and are reversible so you can turn it inside out for a different look.
The brown basket on the left is made using wool from Blackberry, a Romeldale ewe with a naturally black fleece. Silk was used to add texture to the bowl, those are the squiggly lines. The silk is also from the farm, we raised silk worms last year for the silk cocoons.
