Black Sheep Farm is in northern Loudoun County, Virginia, not far from the Potomac River and 30 miles from Washington, D.C. It is a region full of scenic beauty and centuries of American history, along the Journey Through Hallowed Ground Corridor. To the south, Thomas Jefferson at Monticello and to the west, Isaac Hite at Belle Grove Plantation, each acquired Merino sheep after the breed came to this young nation in 1803. We carry on the tradition of fine-wool production in Northern Virginia.
In October 2016 we welcomed a new crop of lambs with New Zealand Merino natural colored and Australian Merino white sires, and are expecting another crop of AI lambs with those sires in October 2018. Two of those wonderful ram lambs lambs sired last fall’s lamb crop. See the Stock page for images and descriptions of the sale lambs.
And in the fiber department, we currently offer roving and batting from choice white and natural colored fleeces, as well as some raw fleeces. Just in is some batting with with silk added! Absolutely fabulous for felting! Stay tuned.
