As a participant in the Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em project, the Ross Farm raises 11 different breeds of Heritage and Rare Breed sheep on their farm in Washington County, PA just 30 miles from the show. All the roving and yarn is processed at a female-owned, family-farm-based mill in PA as well, making it a “Pa Preferred” product that supports family farms raising happy, healthy sheep for your fiber-crafting pleasure!
