Schoolhouse Farm in Tamworth, NH

The Icelandic ewes & lambs waiting to be sheared.
I will be spinning this fleece soon!!! She is an Icelandic lamb named Yin. Her twin's coloring was opposite hers, and her name is Yang. Yin will be moving to another farm soon. No one had any idea that she was going to have all of those spots, until Jerry started to shear her. Watch the knitting blog for this fleece as it becomes yarn and quite possibly a shawl!
Great views!                            
This is a beautiful area, and a wonderfully restored farm. The Icelandic sheep here have great colors and very nice conformation. I am going to enjoy the lamb's fleece immensely!
