Each month on the first and fifteenth, we will spotlight our members in a new series. We want to promote you, our members, to showcase the work you put into raising sheep. If you are interested in having your farm spotlighted, email Education Committee Chair: Amy Kidd at firstname.lastname@example.org
The first of each month will spotlight a member farm that primarily markets their lamb products and the fifteenth of the month will spotlight a member farm that primarily markets their fiber products. We look forward to promoting our members and hope you enjoy this new series.
January Fiber Farm Spotlight: Skybrooke Farm
Helene and Chase Dooley raise registered Romney and CVM/Romeldale sheep in Mocksville, NC. Skybrooke Farm primarily focuses on wool and fiber production from their sheep and alpaca. The Romney breed is a dual-purpose breed that is the finest micron count of the long wool breeds. This is an excellent breed for hand spinners and produces mild meat as well. The CVM is a finer fleece breed that is also large with an excellent lofty fleece. The Dooleys’ love natural color wool and their flock reflect that passion.
Helene has been active in the NCSPA since 2019 and enjoys sharing her love of sheep with the community. Skybrooke Farm sells their wool products on their website: skybrookefarm.com or on Etsy.
