Spinner Farm

Steve and Leslie Chunn (Owners)

Spinner Farm is a working sheep and horse farm with a large indoor area where our festival artists, vendors and demonstrators will be set up. We raise dual purpose sheep fiber & meat). It's mostly a spinner's flock with Romney, Blue Faced Leicester, Border Leicester, and Cheviot lines. At WAT, we will also have natural and hand dyed roving, batts for spinning or needlefelting, hand spun yarn, mohair locks and wool blankets. We will also have a limited number of washable Natural Sheepskin Rugs. Farm, fiber and horsemanship summer and school vacation camps for young and old. Lessons for fiber prep, spinning and knitting are available upon request.
