Collection: Birchgrove Farms

Birchgrove Farms is a small, family run farm in Desbarats. Our flock of sheep is growing and changing as we focus on improving the quality of our fibre, but we continue to know the name and unique personality of each sheep.

Our flock is shorn once a year by an experienced local shearer who we have known for many years, as he has sheared for three generations of our families.

We work together to clean each fleece before it goes to the mill, where the wool is processed in small batches so that we can track each fleece. As we live with five months of winter, our sheep eat hay, and despite our best efforts to remove it, there may still be a few small flecks in the yarn: a reminder of the natural quality of the product.

We are proud of the care we give our sheep and enjoy each as an individual, so we add a photo and the name of at least one sheep included in the yarn to each item we sell.

We hope each creator will feel connected to the story of our wool.
