2014: Cavey Family Sheep and Wool, Co.
My husband and I have raised and shown Montadale Sheep for 38 years. The sheep have won many prestigious awards in sheep shows as well as in fleece competitions. Once our sheep are shorn, the fleeces are handpicked by me to avoid second cuts which lead to pilling, packed and sent to Green Mountain Spinnery for processing into worsted weight yarn. I hand dye the yarn so there is a varied palette of beautiful colors available in addition to the naturals white and a natural grey.
