 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 harvest.

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.

Some 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.

 Wellspring Farm Fiber Shares will include:

1.  Wellspring Farm Fiber Share/Spinning Fibers: total 1 pound roving assortment, choice of 4oz each of 4 blends, or 2oz each of 8 blends (75.00)

or

2.  Wellspring Farm Fiber Share/Yarn: 1 pound yarn assortment, with choice of 4oz each of 4 yarns, or 8oz each of 2 yarns (125.00)

Also included in each share are 2 on-line newsletter, free farm tour for shareholder and their family, and 10% off all farm shop and mail order purchases except for spinning wheels and lessons in 2016.

Rovings and yarns will be shipped late summer and fall 2016.

Wellspring Farm Hand Made Soap and Wooden Soap Dish

Now in my 20th year of making these soaps, I make the soap in small batches using olive, coconut, palm and vegetable oils, sodium hydroxide, spring water and quality fragrance oils. No artificial colors or preservatives are used. I handcut the bars and let them age for four to six weeks. Because of the method I use in making the soaps the natural glycerine is retained, resulting in a bar of soap kind to your skin.


Lavender
Lavender Oatmeal
Apple and Spice
Lemongrass
Cinnamom Oatmeal
Gardeners Soap (cornmeal, aloe, Clove frag)


Each 3oz bar is double wrapped in paper with in inner protective wax wrap, and a paper band.
Bars: 3.50 each or 4 bars for 12.00
