What you'll do

You'll be transported to the New Zealand countryside to see the surrounds of our beautiful farm and meet our friendly, naturally coloured Corriedale sheep & lambs (only during lambing season). Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you would like to ask. We can talk about how they are looked after on the farm, the lambs and breeding cycle and how we rescue and carefully feed any orphan lambs. You can even learn a bit about the history of sheep farming in New Zealand. Next I'll explain how wool is shorn from the sheep, skirted, washed & dried. Next you can select your choice of wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn. I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demonstration on my spinning wheel. Then there will be lots of opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our beautiful friendly wooly friends or wool processing. This experience is suitable for beginners with no previous experience needed. This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups (30)? Send me a message to book for up to 100 guests. First lamb has been born July, 2020. See our first babies of the season, don't miss the cuteness!

Angie

I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm and process my own wool, lama, possum and alpaca fibre. I am a teacher and enjoy showing guests the basics of fibre preparation, carding, spinning and knitting or felting. I have been knitting since my grandmother taught me as a child and spinning for a few years. I have a passion for working with natural fibres and love to pass this excitement onto others.
