Welcome to Westfarthing Farm-- Home of
happy sheep, who are merrily growing their
wonderful wool for all fiber artist.
We are located in the mountains of Central New
Mexico in southern historic Santa Fe County.
Being at an elevation of 7000 feet we experience
cold, snowy winters and mild warm summers.
We strive to give our flock of natural colored and
white, Corriedale, Lincoln, Shetland and Finn sheep
the best of care. Our goal is to offer quality hand
spinning fleece and products produced from our
fleece. We offer sheep with correct body type
and excellent fleece with 4 to 5 inch staple
length. Our Corriedale fleece range from medium
to medium fine in grade. Our Lincoln sheep have
a longer staple length, that is lustrous and
medium in grade. Shetland and Finn are smaller
breeds and as a result have fleeces that range
from 2 to 5 pounds.
Our sheep are always covered from about 4
weeks of age. This insures a very clean raw
fleece, which we heavily skirt. We are spinners,
weavers, knitters and we use our own wool.
