WELLSPRING FARM 2016 FIBER SHARES
For 2016 we are offering a limited number of Fiber Shares. By purchasing a Fiber
share you will be investing in the care of Wellspring Farm's sheep, llamas and alpacas, whoes fibers are processed into our
fine, limited edition spinning blends and yarns. Two on-line newsletters will introduce you to the wool producing animals
on the farm and their stories. Plus, you can follow what is happening on the farm, and birth announcements on the Wellspring
Farm Facebook page. We'll take care of the feeding, birthing, barn chores and shearing and you can share in the wool
After shearing in the
spring we begin the process of creating specialty blends for hand spinners. These specialty blends are limited editions
and seldom duplicated. One of our specialties is the Jacob swirl roving. Other rovings are blends of llama
or alpaca with dyed mohair (from our goat Samson), fine wool, angora (from our bunny Mouse), or silk and bamboo. They
are all special and fun to spin. We will be happy to include the names and photos of the animals who contributed
fiber to these blends. Spinning fibers are first made available to our shareholders.
of our special fleeces and some of the roving blends are also made into wonderful, one of a kind yarns. We offer hand
painted yarns and natural color yarns. If spinning is not "your thing" but love to knit
and crochet you may want to consider a Fiber Share in yarn. As with the rovings, the yarns are first made available
to our shareholders.
