Fun for the Whole Family!
OUR ROMNEY SHEEP
At Skybrooke Farm we love our Romney sheep. They are a beautiful dual purpose breed that produces both flavorful meat and lovely fleeces for spinning. The fleece is so easy to work with and perfect for beginners. I first worked with a Romney natural color fleece for it's broad range in color and spinning characteristics. The color ranges from silver grey, charcoal grey, black and everything in between, but their black outlined faces and personality are what I fell in love with. Calm, loving, nurturing, easy to manage with a dash of mischief.
We have 5 beautiful and soft alpaca on the farm and a llama, Lily. Their fleece is gorgeous and easy to work with. Each of these girls has an easy, calm personality with the newest female leading the herd. I blend our alpaca fleece with our Romney wool to make it more skin soft. The fibers work very well together!
Who We Are
Skybrooke Farm is a local family-run Farm in Mocksville, NC that focuses on lustrous natural fiber and raising healthy lambs. Currently we have 14 Romney sheep, 5 alpaca, and a llama! We strive to make the most of everything the sheep and land provide for us. I (Helene) take great pride in the fleeces from the sheep and alpaca. I fell in love with working with fiber and had to have a flock of sheep! I now spin our wool and make roving that is available in our store.
Skybrooke Farm will host several fun activities to take place throughout the year. Check out our events calendar and come visit us with your family for a day of fun at Skybrooke Farm.
