Suzy the Shepherdess Yarn

Suzy Beggin raises historic breeds of sheep, mostly merino, with a few cheviot-merino crosses. The sheep are raised on her small farm using 19th century farming methods whenever possible. The wool is processed on a mill made early in the 20th century that uses the same milling methods that have been in use since the 1760s. Then the wool is wound by hand into traditional skeins and labeled with a unique label with a picture of the sheep that helped to create the yarn.
