Emily Chamelin

Emily is a full-time Professional sheep shearer working in and around Frederick, Carroll, Howard and Baltimore Counties, the eastern shore, throughout Maryland, and surrounding states.  Care is taken to provide a quality wool clip as well as provide a good shearing experience for all.

Emily is experienced and knowledgeable about show fleeces, and care is taken to provide every producer with a high quality product.  She participates in the ASI Wool Quality Program, and has worked and trained with some of the top shearers in the country.

Emily is trained to shear with both machines (she uses a Heiniger Drop Shaft) as well as shear with Hand Shears (Blade Shearing).  Hand shearing does not cost extra and, as a member of the USA Sheep Shearing Team in this area, she is always looking for opportunities to practice her blade shearing.

Feel free to call or e-mail at any time to schedule a shearing date (the earlier the better), or if you have any questions.  Please visit my website listed above, to read more about the services.

Has access to fleeces and can help refer spinners to breeders with fleeces if she does not have what you are looking for.  Emily also helps smaller producers find and lease rams for breeding.  Contact Emily for more information.

Emily is also the Manager of the Maryland Wool Pool.  Go to "Events" and scroll down to June 18th. -- Maryland Wool Pool.

Jeff & Jan White

Chestnut Creek Farm was established in 2005 by Jeffrey and Jan White.  The 64-acre farm located in Carroll County is compromised of rolling forested hills, flat lowland meadows, fields in production, a fish pond, and several streams.  The majority of tillable acreage is kept in corn and soybeans using no-till farming.

The fields nearest the farmstead rotate between vegetables grown for the family and farmers market and legumes (to restore soil quality).  Blueberry bushes were planted in 2007 and came into production in 2010.

A small fruit  orchard comprised of apple, peach, pear and plum trees has been started.

We also raise some pastured turkeys that are available in November for Thanksgiving.

Raise Katahdin ewes, and Katahdin/Dorper crossbreds.

Breeding stock is available.

We offer up to 40 CSA memberships.

Roger & Mary Bare

Cranberry Creek Fibers recently relocated from Carroll County, Maryland to carve out a small farm in North Carolina. We still maintain strong ties to the Maryland area.

Our farm is home to a dozen English Leicester Longwool sheep, both registered and cross-bred, some Mytonic fainting goats, free-range chickens, barn cats, two English Shepherds who love to herd the chickens, and a guard llama who's favored by everyone, but remains totally aloof.

Fleeces of the Leicester Longwool are white, curly locks, with staple length of 5" or more, sheared annually. This is not a fine wool - it's most suitable for outer wear, such as hats, bags, & shawls. It felts wonderfully for just about any felting project. As the sheep aren't covered, a minimal amount of vm may be expected. The longwool spews a high luster that gives jewel-tone hues when dyed.

The status of the English Leicester is noted as threatened by the Livestock Conservancy. Your purchase enables us to continue our efforts to save this important dual-purpose breed.

We have hand spun and mill spun yarns in natural and hand-dyed colors, core-spun yarn, roving, quilt batting in limited amounts, dryer balls, and raw fleece.

Handwoven products include core-spun wool rugs, cotlin (cotton/linen blend) tea towels inspired by age-old designs, and reed baskets woven with the needs of fiber artists in mind.
