Sheepshed at Mountain View Farm was created in 1986 with two pet lambs given to our 2 oldest children. We had a barn and the lambs came home after a lunch at a local farm. A year later I taught myself how to spin yarn and the following year, - we tried several different breeds of sheep until we narrowed down a spinning flock of sheep. We raised Coopworth a natural grey sheep originally from New Zealand and Columbia sheep. My flock was mostly grey and brown with a couple of white. One of the original lambs the day of the lunch was a Finn Sheep named Sam. Once the girls were old enough we formed the first NH Llama club and each girl had their own Llamas. We would show Llamas at the county fairs. I enjoy spinning my own yarns, and dyeing the yarns. I look for the very best spinning fibers I can find from all over the world. I am a artist, spinner, dyer and weaver - starting out at the ground level with sheep first, - next learning to spin, weave, dye and create art - everything fiber.
