About Us

Phoenix all started with an alpaca. Yes, those fuzzy little animals that will win your heart with their sweet sounds, huge dreamy eyes and luxurious fibers. We welcomed a few out to our rural ranch in southern Colorado and raised these amazing animals for their fluffy fiber. After the first shear, we were hooked. And after picking, washing, and carding the fleeces, the process blossomed into a wonderful world of colors, textures and textiles. We grew the business using small shows, word of mouth and, with a little help from social media, we quickly realized the desire for home spun and home made goods were still very much wanted. This encouraged Phoenix into the business we are today! Because Phoenix is a family run and operated business, we have the distinct advantage of allowing everyone in our family to have a part in the making of the products we produce.

About Us

Point of View Farm raises heritage purebred finnsheep in New York. Our pastured based flock is raised all naturally and coated so we can produce the highest quality wool items for your consideration. We are the shepherds. We birth the lambs, raise the sheep, sort the wool, wash and dye the wool, spin some yarns and lots more. We are happy to help you discover finnsheep.

We offer sheepskins, wool socks, yarn, roving, wool comforters and sheep milk soaps all from our farm. You can also find Finnish Fazer chocolates, our ceramics, yarn bowls, soap dishes, handmade gnomes (tomte/ tontuu), Unicorn drop spindles, dryer balls, Spinolution wheels and more. In fact, lots more yarn!

Our highly sought after washable finnsheep sheepskins are available in all colors including variegated grey, variegated fawns, white and caramel to deep chocolate brown. These are really soft and stunning. Length of wool and colors are unique to each. Favorite uses are over the back of a chair to rest on, rug or pet bed. We also have room size rugs & chair pads.

Also find our farm wool socks available in 3 weights for all seasons. We love these socks and wear them ourselves (almost every day). Unicorn drop spindles with kaleidoscope colored whorls and hand turned hardwood shafts. Each is one of a kind just like our handcrafted Nordic gnomes with their wooly beards and felted hats.

Ahh, raw fleeces. Our farm has taken 1st & 2nd place ribbons at the MDSW fleece show/ sale in prior years. Our finnsheep fleeces are coated and skirted so you are only buying nice clean handspinning wool for your special project.

Zzzz. Finnsheep wool filled comforters. Breathable, warm and healthy. Sleep deeper, more comfortably and fire retardant free. It helps and I bet you will never go back once you’ve experienced better sleep under one.

Sheep milk soaps. Yes that is a thing and we make them with shea butter, cocoa butter and other great ingredients for your skin. Unscented.
