A trip to the farm…

Yesterday, Tara and I went for a visit to Ewetopia (farm that is)!

Lorrie showed us around the farm and we got to see all the spring lambs – such fun!

One little lamb was the smallest of a set of triplets. So cute…

It is being bottle fed, so Tara got to try feeding it…

Lorrie and her husband Andy (who does leatherwork) raise the sheep for their wool. Lorrie is a spinner and a weaver and she uses her own homegrown and home-dyed wool. It is beautiful – as anyone who has woven here knows as I always have a supply of “Lorrie’s locks” to add some colour and texture to the SAORI weaving!

These sheep are well cared for, raised for their fibre and Lorrie says that they even wear coats to keep their fleece clean!

A beautiful farm – thanks for the tour Lorrie!
