Vad du kommer att göra

When you arrive o on our beautiful farm and meet our friendly, naturally coloured Corriedale sheep & lambs. Followed by an explanation of how wool is shorn from the sheep, skirted, washed & dried. Next, guests will select their choice of wool, alpaca, lama and other fibres to card into large batts of fibre that are ready to process by spinning them into wool.
After a spinning demonstration, guests will be able to practise spinning the fibre into their own ball of wool to take with them. If time allows they can try knitting or weaving and have a short walk around the farm to meet the other animals. This experience is suitable for beginners with no previous experience needed. Children can attend, just advise the age of the child, as I'll organise a child friendly wool activity for them.

I'd like to make sure you have fun, relaxing & unique experience that you will always remember. The scenery is spectacular and I am happy to take photos of you around the farm and with the animals.

You can even select your own farm made hat as a free souvenir. Each hat is handcrafted, organically processed and shorn from our own sheeps wool, hand made and over 20 hours of work in each one. Come and learn how your hat was crafted - eco -slow fashion just for you.

I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm and process my own wool, lama and alpaca fibre. I am a teacher and enjoy showing guests the basics of fibre preparation, carding, spinning and knitting or felting. I have been knitting since my grandmother taught me as a child and spinning for a few years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres and love to pass this excitement onto others.

Towards the end of the experience you can enjoy the experience of choosing your own farm sourced, hand spun, hand-knitted hat, as a special gift to remember your special visit to meet our sheep. These are a true labour of love and care and will give you a wonderful appreciation of the beauty warmth, and functionality of pure NZ, natural wool.

We enjoyed our time with Angie and learnt a lot about sheep farming and how wool can be used in many ways. It was a delightful visit and we left with smiles on our faces.

Angie hat uns zuerst den ganzen Hof mit allen Tieren gezeigt und die Kinder durften beim Füttern helfen. Sie ist sehr gut auf uns und die Kinder eingegangen.

Angie was so nice and accommodating to our family. She presented her farm and wool work with a teacher’s presence and really engaged our daughters. The horse ride was very fun for all. Definitely recommend this experience if you are in the area.

We had a great time! It was nice to have a go spinning and learning about different fibres. We also toured the farm let and met some animals and it was great!
