Our farm is currently home to the Persian Karakul Sheep. We offer 2-ply and 4-ply rug yarns suitable for Oxford punch needles or mini needles, depending on your requirements.

Sheep are Virginia raised, sheared, fleece hand inspected, then machine spun into rug yarn.  Each skein is hand-dyed at Greenwood. One of a kind unique yarn for your projects!
