EARTH DAY APRIL  22  WE ARE HAVING AN “OPEN BARN”  

      WE TOOK THE PLEDGE AND WORK TO KEEP OUR FARM NATURAL

Take the Pledge!

New Mexico has always been defined by the natural beauty of its landscapes—by past generations who carved out a living from it, and by the next generation that seeks adventure in its folds. In order to preserve this beauty, it is up to us as the current generation to act as stewards of this land. We can keep our state clean and beautiful with the help of dedicated volunteers like you.

WELCOME TO 2017

CHANGES EFFECTIVE JULY 2016:   Hours at the Farm are by App.  This give a more flexible format for people who schedule is like mine…crazy!    July & August will be “spinning” and “dying” here.  Getting stock back up for the Fall Season (see calendar of Events).  Since I do everything by hand here it is a challenge to keep up!

Our other local NM product is Honey.  I keep several bee hives and have Raw Honey for Sale at the Farm or any of the events I attend.    I do not ship honey.

Fiber, ( wool) raised on site, also angora. (from angora rabbits) right here on the Farm in New Mexico.  Alpaca fiber from local farms.  No imports, no commercial yarns.  This is all New Mexico, USA fiber and USA made products

Spinning Fiber:   I have clean and carded wool  batts and rounds of  fiber for spinners or crafters.  And I ship !  Dyed art batts come in several choices.    Prepared in 2-3 oz, but get as much as you want.  All  hand-spun wool yarns, blends of wool and angora, and or alpaca.

New in 2017 there are woven shawls and throws made from all my hand-spun wool yarn.

On hand year round are my wool socks made from my wool in 2 sizes.  Check that

heading for more info!  Thanks

Both companies offer extensive items for fiber artists, to much for me to list on my site.  These  can  shipped directly to you if you are not local.  Also a small selection of spinning wheels, carders, & circular weaving from Maja.  Keep  most replacement drive bands on hand.  I will be carrying some new dyes this year,  still have some Gaywool dyes I have used for a long time,  slowing transitions to American Made.

Spinning Wool

Spinning Wool

Seen in the picture here is indigo wool being spun into yarn. and check it out. Of course you can order here!

All of my yarns are hand-spun in my living room. Nothing is ever sent out to be commercially done. The exception to that before I spin I have the fiber cleaned and carded, that is also done in New Mexico.  I often use other mills if other forms of batts are needed.     The colors are dyed here also using Australian Gaywool Dyes. Know for great color and permanence . I either leave then solid color in skeins or make art batts and art yarn from them.
