Warm White Corriedale Roving

Nearly 10 pounds of white wool from "Hannah" the Corriedale sheep went off to Zeilingers Wool Mill, and came back as 7 pounds of lovely roving, ready to be spun!  Fully raised and produced right here in the Middle of the Mitten, Michigan's lower peninsula.


Hannah's fleece is warm white with a vintage look and feel.  She has a long staple length with the traditional Corriedale crimp and I think that is still evident in the roving.  It's plush and comforting to spin, with the notable Corriedale softness and durability.  I have approximately 5 pounds available for $28 per pound (plus shipping).  If you would be interested in all 5 pounds (share with a friend!) price will be reduced to $25 per pound (plus shipping)

We accept Paypal (preferred), check or money order.  Please contact me at serenityfarmswool @ yahoo dot com with any questions, availability and shipping quote.

Fluffy white sheep Hannah, who produced the wool that made this roving!

Corriedale Fleeces 2017

I do have most of the 2017 Corriedale and Corriedale cross fleeces skirted, but not photographed (photo below is from 2016).  If you are interested it would be best to shoot me an email at serenityfarmswool@yahoo.com.  There is no white available, but a variety of greys.  Prices will be reflected by how clean each particular fleece is.

Yarn Update

IAn update to the yarns that are currently available for purchase ~



From left to right, they are :
"Dunbonnet", moorit Corriedale-Bond cross, 3 ply, worsted spun sport weight, 250 yards; 

"Gravel Road at Dark" (very limited, only a few skeins left), charcoal grey, completely Corriedale, 3 ply, woolen spun sport weight, 250 yards and 

"Lord John Grey", actually much more silvery grey than the photo shows, 80/20 blend of Corriedale and Alpaca, 3 ply, woolen spun, heavy fingering weight, 250 yards.

Skeins are $20 each, plus shipping.



Photo above shows the Dunbonnet (left) and Gravel Road (right) worked up in a sample, to give you an idea of how it looks worked up.  Below are a pair of gloves knit with the Lord John Grey that more truly represents the color, I think ~



 If you are interested in any of these yarns, please feel free to contact me at serenityfarmswool @ yahoo dot com.  And keep your eyes out for more and new yarns coming back from the mill later this spring!  I can hardly wait!
