Nominated for: BEST Crafts Store
Kristal Sunnyside Farm was started in 1981 with nothing more than a dedication to return a little bit of Brewster to farmland and one Montadale ewe which was purchased at a yard sale and rescued “from the freezer.” Over the past decades, our flock has grown slowly. We have selectively introduced Lincoln and Corridale cross ewes to produce fine colored fleece, but our main effort has been to breed healthy, pure registered Romney sheep.
Romney sheep are known for their long, lustrous fleece and
well-liked by hand spinners because it is easy to spin. The highest quality fleeces are saved for handspun yarn which is made and sold on the farm. The remainder of the fleece is shipped to Bartlettyarns in Harmony, Maine where it is processed and spun on the Bartlett-mule as they have done for over one hundred and eighty years.
