Flower Hill Fleeces

Flower Hill Farm is situated on 230 rolling acres in Armstrong County Pennsylvania and serves as home for a growing flock of registered Shetland and Icelandic sheep (in addition to 3 dogs, 2 cats and a varying number of free range laying hens). Carefully bred and selected for their quality fleeces, the sheep of Flower Hill Farm are tended to by Jodi Horgan, who owns the farm and is an avid spinner and knitter.

Jodi knows that happy sheep produce the best fleeces and beautiful yarn, and her sheep are cared for with love and attention. Sheltered by a restored Pennsylvania bank barn and with access to well fenced pastures guarded by Bear, a Great Pyrenees/British Mastiff mix, Jodi’s flock produces very fine lambs and fleeces.

Our Home Grown yarn collection is produced using wool from our flock. These are one of kind skeins of yarn curated based on natural colors of the sheep raised on our farm. Our Home Grown yarns are spun by a small family run wool mill located in Western Pennsylvania. Our Hand Dyed yarn collection comes in a variety of bases. We dye in small batches (usually 3-4 skeins at a time) using acid dyes. Each skein is lovingly handled many times as it goes from raw yarn to hand crafted skein.
