Discount/Special Offer

In appreciation for all the support we have been given over the years, we are offering a 10% discount sitewide for the MDS&W attendees, using coupon code “MDSW” at checkout. In addition, our partners who handle all the dying of our American Bison Yarns and Knitting Kits, Stunning String Studio is offering a 20% discount on all their American Bison Yarns. Again using coupon code “MDSW”. Offer is good May 1st-10th.

Festival Exclusive

We thought instead of doing something new, fresh and different, we thought we would do what people have asked for over and over and over again…. our MDS&W exclusive this year is the “Return of Crabcakes” 200+ yards of our luxurious and somewhat famous bison/silk laceweight base, expertly dyed by Tom Garland of Stunning String Studio, all wound up into a convenient center pull ball. Adorable, and just flipping georgeous… 100 available.

About Us

Our family has been raising bison for almost 40 years. We’ve spent the last ten years developing a supply chain that brings together small mills, local designers, and large ranches. We believe that, by working together, we can preserve America’s national mammal: the American Plains Bison.

We have been attending the MDS&W for the past 7 years, and have truly loved getting to know so many of ya’ll, from the early days of us bringing our little yarn truck, “Ms. Betsy” T and I are truly going to miss seeing so many of you in person, but PLEASE, don’t hesitate to call or write if there is anything at all we can help you with.

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to seeing you again in 2022!

If you didn't brave the weather to come to last week's festival, but still want a festival t-shirt, you're in luck. Our online store at is being restocked with 2022 merchandise and should be ready by Monday, May 16, 2022 (they just need a little time to unpack the boxes that came back from the festival and see what's what). If memory serves, they will have two colors of short sleeve tees, a long sleeve tee, hats, aprons, fleece vests, sling bags and cinch sack/backpacks. Sorry, the large canvas tote bags are all gone.The online store is at www.sheepman.com/product-category/maryland-sheep-wool-festival-online/. You can also purchase these items in person at the Ceresville New Holland, Inc./Sheepman Supply Co. showroom in Frederick, Maryland. #mdsw2022 #festivalgear ... See MoreSee Less

This is a common occurrence with large conferences and trade shows in recent years.It is our policy to NEVER sell, rent, or share attendee contact information. No company is authorized to distribute or sell any email lists of Festival attendees. The Festival is not providing this list nor generating these messages. How did they get your email? Software programs can crawl websites in search of email addresses that are listed on them (identifiable by the @ sign).If you receive an email offering to sell you a list of Festival attendees, do not respond to it. By responding—even with a request to unsubscribe—you confirm that your email address is a valid one, which may increase the likelihood that you’ll be contacted again. ... See MoreSee Less

This little lost lamb kid's mitten was turned in to the Lost & Found and would like to find it's mate. There is also a handmade shawlette someone might be missing, along with the usual random assortment of items -- reading glasses, etc. -- and, no surprise, a folding umbrella and a pair of rubber boots. Message me or email if any of these sound like they might belong to you, or if there is something else you would like me to check for. #mdsw2022 #lostandfound ... See MoreSee Less
