Putney based Sheep farmer Betsy MacIsaac will share details of her experience raising sheep.  Her flock of colored Merino and CVM/Romeldale flourish at her Crooked Fence Farm.

This herd proudly continues the tradition of sheep keeping in Vermont, which at one point was home to a population of over 1.6 million sheep, making it the Sheep Capital of the world!

Join the fun in Saxtons River this Sunday evening to learn more about it and mingle with other fiber friends.  It’s possible that Betsy may have some some of her most recently sheared fleeces and roving with her so that you can get your hands on fiber grown just down the road from the Spinnery!
