About Us

I grew up appreciating the value of handmade things. They were made of natural ingredients, filled a need, were built to last, and contained large amounts of creativity, inspiration, care and love. In a world that now seems mass – produced, disposable, and sterile I have longed to return those simpler and more fulfilling times. I began exploring the creation of my own yarns by working with my partners at Mulberry Hill Farm in Carlisle PA. They are incredibly hard-working and reliable and I would know; they are my parents. Sean (aka Dad) looks after the farm, our flock and is responsible for 70% of my home renovations. Coleen (aka Mom) is a fellow dyer, my travel partner and the most creative lady I know.

We hand-dye vibrant and beautiful colors on super-wash merino yarn, offering a variety of bases and weights. My pride and joy is our farm-raised yarn, coming from our flock that live at Mulberry Hill Farm (Mom & Dad’s house). We raise Romney/Border Leicester sheep.

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

If you or anyone else receives an email claiming to be able to sell you a list of attendees of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, please ignore it as IT IS A SCAM.

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
