Wool Products
   
Our flock of sheep produce beautiful fleeces which we use for various crafts. We sometimes process the wool on-farm and we also bring it to a local wool mill. We also keep the hides of our lambs and sheep which are processed at a tannery in Southwestern Ontario.

The sheep of Thistlecroft are hard working ewes, producing beautiful fleece on rocky pasture, off-season gardens, the edge of the woods, the abundant and lush grass growing around the house, and locally grown hay cut just for them.

They grow their fleece naturally, their birthright as living creatures. Each sheep grows her own unique coat, a special one to meet the needs of each winter, as determined by the elements.

Flock of sheep - half of them shorn.
We shear our sheep when the warm weather makes their wool uncomfortable. Usually this is in the spring, but some sheep like to be shorn twice a year, the denseness of their particular wool growing to produce a warm coat during warm Ontario autumns.

We take direction from the sheep themselves- each sheep lets us know that her fleece is uncomfortable by rubbing and scratching, as well as by coming to us more frequently for pets. Each sheep has her own shearing needs, and by listening to them, we are able to make shearing a LOT easier for everyone.
