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

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 ~

Corriedale Yarns

A small assortment of millspun Corriedale yarns from our farm, available in limited quantities ~ SOLD OUT (but I'll leave this post here for reference)

From top to bottom ~  GRIZZLY; JANE GRAY and SHADOWS (Shadows has sold out).  It might be a little hard to see in the picture, but there are differences in the greys.  I'll describe them below....

GRIZZLY (top) is a chunky 100% Corriedale yarn with lots of character.  It knits up quickly with size 8 or larger needles, perfect for warm and cozy hats and mittens.  It also shows cables well.  There is the slightly suggestion of brown in this yarn and it overdyes beautifully!  Skeins are about 4 ounces, 170 yards and are $12 per skein

JANE GRAY (middle) is closer to worsted weight (you might compare it to a Cascade 220 type yarn).  More Corriedale from our farm flock, including a ewe named Jane!  Very soft and squishy, and cables really pop with this yarn.  Skeins are approximately 210 yards, $16 per skein.

We do have a few cones of this available, approximately 420 yards per cone if you would be interested.  The yarn is unwashed, you'll need to skein it off and wash it before you use it.  Cones are $28.
(Example of JANE GRAY knit into a sweater)

IRIE (left) is something a little different.  This was actually meant to be a roving made from very dark brown/black Corriedale and a multi color sparkle but the mill spun it into yarn!  It's 2-ply, about a sport weight with approximately 232 yards per skein.  I've started a shawl with it and its really pretty!  $18 per skein

We have a few skeins of Ainsley's COFFEE BEAN BROWN, 2-ply fingering weight yarn in 500 yard hanks.  I haven't tried making socks with it, but I have been working on a sweater carrying the yarn doubled (in progress, below)

Price for approximately 500 yards, 2-ply dark brown yarn from our Corriedale ewe, Ainsley, is $28.

Prices listed do not include shipping.  As always, we accept cash, personal check or money order or Paypal.  If you are interested in any of our products please email me first for availability and a total price (I'll need your mailing address to figure shipping)  We can be reached at serenityfarmswool@yahoo.com and we're always happy to answer any questions!
