Please NOTE: We have moved! Our booth is now upstairs in Bldg. 22, booth #11.

We are a Holistically and sustainably managed small family farm, raising and breeding up the rare Herdwick Sheep. We are a pasture based farm selling meats and our Self-raised unique Herdwick fiber as raw fleece, roving, corespun, pindraft & yarns, as well as sheepskins (pelts, hides). Our sheep were once raised by Beatrix Potter! We will be showing our sheep again in the Black and White Sheep show this year - the 3rd time Herdwick bred sheep have ever been shown in the U.S. Ours! Come see the newest results of our program and our ewenique sheep and learn about their wool. Containing 4 separate fibers, and keeping these sheep warm through winters at upwards of 3,000ft. The fiber is excellent for felting, weaving, knitting or crochet. Strong enough for floor applications and cozy enough for the warmest wool outerwear, and even used as household insulation in the U.K.! Naturally colored from black to silver blue to nearly white. We also offer knitting, crochet and rug making tools and supplies, Oxford Punch Needles and a variety of books and other fiber arts tools. We feature James Rebanks, @herdyshepherd1, world famous Herdwick Shepherd's books "The Shepherd's Life" and "The Shepherd's View"! You used to know us as The Wren's Nest.
