Sheepscot Fiber is our business name and Eolian Farm is where all of our fiber starts atop a very breezy hill on Sheepscot Road in Newcastle, Maine. The farm name came from Homer’s Odyssey and the island of Aeolian where Odysseus was given the gift the wind.
We have Shetland, Icelandic and Finn sheep because we love the smaller size animals and wide range of natural colors their fleece provides.
In addition to the sheep we also have llamas. The blend of the two fibers makes a very soft and lofty yarn.
In addition to the fiber animals we make soap and lotion bars using egg yolk from our hens and wax from our bees.
