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.
We have a new crop of lambs with New Zealand Merino natural colored and Australian Merino white sires, born in October 2018. We’ll offer a few of these for sale after they are weaned in January. Check back then 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! See the Products page.
