The Farm Near Pigeon Lake
Our Dorset wool comes from a small family farm near Pigeon Lake, AB, in Treaty 6 territory.
While this flock’s genetics are mostly Dorset, the flock has also been cross breed with Rambouillet (close cousins of the Merinos), and very fine Suffolk, giving the yarn extra softness, loftiness, and a springy, playful elasticity.
Dorset wool is a natural bright, clean white colour. Dorset is quite soft and resists felting, making it appropriate for next-to-skin projects like hats, scarves, mittens, and socks.
