Welcome to Red Creek Farm!
We are a small family-run sheep farm in Mendocino County, California, specializing in fine hand spinning fleeces. Tucked away in a corner of Potter Valley, our flock of over 30 sheep spends its summers on irrigated clover pasture, winters on grass and alfalfa hay, and springs ranging in the hills. We recently have had our Carbon Farm Plan approved and have achieved Climate Beneficial Verified status as well as being a certified Fibershed Producer.
On the farm we have been watching our new hedgerow grow with most of the new plants doing very well. It is wonderful to see all the insect life enjoying the many new flowers.
In the dye garden new additions of yellow cosmos, black scabiosa, and black Hopi sunflower are bringing new colors to the yarns. Further experimentation with fermenting indigo is yielding some nice indigo powder.
We have this year's spring lambs from our new ram, Ollie, a dark brown Merino from Kirabo Pastures.
We are excited to add three new yarns to our collection created by Mendocino Wool and Fiber Mill. One is a 2 ply sport weight from our Merino/Cormo/Wensleydale cross sheep-- very shiny and soft in both a natural white and natural medium grey. The second is a fawn colored DK weight Merino/Alpaca blend, a lovely color with a soft hand. The third is a 2 ply worsted weight Merino in both a natural white and a natural dark brown/grey.
