Gotland Holiday Sale
For the past two weeks, our new flock of Gotland sheep have been making their way across country to our farm. Their journey began in Oregon. The journey of the Gotlands has been long and we will be so happy when they finally reach Grand View Farm! In celebration of their anticipated arrival, we are hosting a Gotbaa Holiday Sale! All purchases go to supporting our new flock of sheep!
We have four items to offer in our Gotbaa Holiday Sale: Grand View Farm Mugs, Gotbaas, Gotta Love Gotland Totes, and Gotland Yarn CSA Shares. To make your purchase, click on the “Buy Now” button under the picture of the item you would like to buy. (If you want to purchase multiple items, please contact me so I can combine shipping costs for you.)

4. Gotland Sheep Yarn CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Share – Full Share $55 – Half Share $27
Purchase a Gotland Yarn CSA Share and help support our new flock of sheep through the winter months. After spring shearing, we will send our Gotland fiber to the mill to be spun into yarn. I am currently researching the best spinning specifications for our wool by talking with a mill in England that spins Gotland wool, and sharing that information with the small mill in the U.S. that we have been working with. Though I can not be sure of the exact weights just yet, I am hoping for a 3 or 4 ply DK or worsted weight yarn. A full share will give you four 50 gram skeins of yarn (approximately 460 yards) and a half share will give you two 50 gram skeins of yarn (approximately 230 yards). Pictured is a fleece sheared from one of our little Gotland ewes this fall. Just imagine yummy yarn spun with this fiber!!
(Yarn CSA Shares will be shipped summer of 2015.)
