Mt. Bruce Station is located at ...
6440 Bordman Rd., Romeo Michigan 48065

This years' shearing has provided us with many gorgeous, fine, clean, jacketed fleeces, and natural colour rovings and yarns. We have many new items produced from these fine fleeces.
 

~ Farm Yarns From The Mt. Bruce Station Flock ~

 

The Corriedale, Moorit, and Jacob sheep flock at Mt. Bruce Station is well tended to produce a soft healthy fleece which is shorn off once a year. The fleece is then skirted, graded and hand washed before being carded and spun into soft woolen yarns. We avoid the use of chemical or acid treatments in our washing and dyeing, but instead favor the original organic cleaners and plant dyes. All skeins are fleece identified to help you, the knitter, select just the right one for your project. The Farm Yarn selection listed below is spun in small batches after our annual shearing and varies each year.

Please call 810-798-2568 to place your order or click here to print our order form and mail.

 

 

 

~Farm Yarn Naturals~
Shades of cream, gray, charcoal, chocolate,  and various tweeded natural colours.

From a customer who had been searching for very fine 100% wool yarn in a natural cream to knit a special heirloom family shawl.  She used "Annie's Yarn", however we have sold it all but have replaced it with "Lillian's Yarn" (past yarn), Annie's great-granddaughter (sold out, replaced with Pansy, see below).

"Your gift of a generous spool of wool was used for the shawl we spoke about and I assure you it is  lovely piece.  My daughter, Leanne, knitted some socks with some of the yarn too.  He keeps warm with his handmade socks and claims they are the best!"

"Dear Yvonne,
I wanted to write you a note to let you know that I was the lucky recipient of the "Tumbleblock Sweater" knitted by one of your special handknitters.  Thank you also for the wonderful note about her heritage.  Obviously the sweater is thee sweater of a lifetime!  I feel so special when I wear it and feel such a connection to this wonderful handknitter!  My husband purchased the sweater for me and one of Hulda's Blankets for himself.  Now he spends Sunday afternoons napping with her!  Thank you again for your kindness."
