Happy Goat Lucky Ewe Fiber Farm and Pollinator Sanctuary
About us ...
    In 1991 Grandpa Doc gave the kids a ewe lamb to bottle feed.  
    My son was four at the time, my daughter was three. We named
    the ewe, Meryl Sheep (Sesame Street gets the credit) and she
    was the beginning of a love affair  with fleece.

    From that point forward we began to collect fiber animals - I
    bought a small herd of Angora goats from a friend, and picked
    up additional does; then I picked up more sheep and found
    myself obsessed with spinning and felting  and knitting - so
    much for the horses.  We rescued a few sheep, took in a bunch
    more when a friend moved to California, adopted a bottle lamb
    (again) - and the next thing you know we have a flock/herd of
    over 30 animals with spring kids and lambs adding to the mix.

    into this fabulous business, please click here or keep reading.
    So here we are many years later, knee deep in fiber and sharing
    our products with you.  

    Some of our wool goes to Zeilingers in Frankenmuth to be made
    into socks, some goes to Stonehedge in East Jordan to be
    processed with alpaca fiber from Michigan farms.  The yarn is a
    lovely 50/50 blend.  We call it Fresh Water Fiber yarn, as we are
    blessed to be surrounded by the Great Lakes and thousands of
    fresh water lakes and ponds.  In 2018 our fine fiber crop went to
    Hoof 2 Hanger in the southwest corner of the Lower Peninsula.  
    They are making 100% merino wool yarn for us. It should be
    ready for the Fiber Festival in August.  Keep an eye out for it
    when you mosey through the buildings.  

    Our yarns are hand painted or kettle dyed with Cushing's and
    Jaquard Dyes. The yarn is ideal for outerwear, for heavy
    sweaters, socks, or vests.   Don't expect this yarn to wear out -
    your projects will end up being heirloom gifts for years to come.
    The 50/50 alpaca merino yarn batch is almost gone - I have
    approximately 20 skeins left.  If you like it, don't hesitate to buy -
    this is the last of a wonderful yarn.

    Happy Goat Lucky Ewe Fiber Farm was settled north of Mason,
    Michigan in 1984.  I finally got serious and started to sell all that
    mohair and wool in 2006, we started selling our roving for
    spinners, handspun yarns, scarves, comforters and novelty
    items such as bird nesting material and fly tier's dubbing for
    fishermen. Today we specialize in purebred merino starter
    flocks and millspun fine-wool and alpaca yarns, millspun socks
    and dryer balls.  I still enjoy spinning for special orders and I sell
    single skeins from roving batches.  Our stuff moves fast, so
    don't wait too long to order.
