It has been very busy on the farm this past 7 months. With the fibre shows not operating due to Covid 19 we have had to put on our thinking caps and find some innovative ways to offer our fibre for sale. We fell a bit short on ideas right away but we have a few things to try in the future.
The Fibre Festival in Langley, B.C. has been cancelled for this year and has promised to try again in 2022! Hopefully we all will have had our vaccine! For now, do your part and wear your mask and stay safe !
Key to our 'sell out' of fibre are all the beautiful fibre friends who continue to be awesome clients and also to anyone who recommend to others to give our farm a try. Thank you...thank you...thank you!!!
The sheepies are wonderful and will be shorn soon. Our shearer Amber is having great difficulty crossing the Canadian Border. Being an Canadian living in Lynden, Washington does not give her any special rights. Amber is not considered an essential service because she does not cross the border every day to shear! She is my biggest essential service to our flock. A local shearer told Amber she would help out! Good luck with that! I cannot wait until June 1st!
Fleeces and fibre will be listed below as it becomes available. Our shearing will be intermittently done by me throughout the year until late October. I have been practising.
We have a growing list of clients reserving their favourite fleeces!
And if you have fibre friends nearby or a guild member...we will combine your orders for a savings on mailing or shipping costs. Last year we shipped a couple of orders out as one and if did save the lady's some money.
Take care and stay safe!
I will soon be loading our website with our newest product, handspun yarn. I am finally spinning and my cheering section is very happy with what they see! We have commissioned a spinner with many years of experience to spin some yarn. She is Ms. G. Wesley from Langley, B.C and a beautiful story in the making it was! Please watch in our online store for yarn spun by her. I was holding back the tears when she brought back our fibre spun into yarn!
We will continue to have hand carded batts from my Ashford Double Wide Carder and new will be the jumbo batts (approx. 20" x 40" ) from my new Brother E Carder XL. They remind me so much of cotton candy when coming of the carder! Our stunning Romney is unaccompanied or blended with fabulous silks, pulled sari silk(my fav!), bamboo, mohair, merino, BFL, firestar, angelina, etc. If there are no premade batts catching your eye...tell us you would like and I will make the batt of your dreams.!
On a personal note...I am finally able to spin. I still have much to learn which I am looking forward to.!
Lyndhaven Farms stands behind all their fibre products.!
All our clients are important to us!
A beautiful fleece by Porsche that can challenge many other Romney fibre.

A list of Porsche’s 2020 fleeces attributes is consistently wavy crimp; a 5-6” staple length; beautiful handle; amazing soundness and strength of the fibre; gorgeous tips; light clean grease presence which is great for spinning on the grease.

This stunning fleece has been produced by Turner. It’s purebred Romney fibre in all its wonder!
In this one-year growth, Turner’s fibre has no indication of being stressed, burdened or traumatized.

Turner’s fleece was dyed and used in the art batts and roving we are selling this weekend. The colours are amazing!
