Our Shop

At the present time we are sold out of our "best" Santa Cruz Island, white roving. However, as of spring 2022, we have many of this year's fleeces in to the mill to be processed into sliver, both white and brown. And we still have a good supply of "not-so-best" white roving, at $6.00 per ounce plus shipping. If you might be interested, please examine the three close-up photos below. Email me at lynn@blueoakcanyonranch.com.

We are sold out of fleeces from this year's (2022's) clip. Much of this clip went to the mill for processing, and when the roving returns I will certainly list it here. Thank you!

An exciting new development is we have, back from the mill, last year's clip processed and spun into yarn. The mill couldn't handle making a pure Santa Cruz Island yarn, but blended in 25 percent Targhee, for a very nice yarn. All the Santa Cruz Island is from our ranch, and the Targhee (I was told) is from South Dakota. All sustainably US grown, and processed in the US. The yarn is DK weight, 11 to 12 wraps per inch. It retains its rustic quality and Santa Cruz Island softness and elasticity, and it comes in three colors - white, gray, and dark brown. It is put up in 2 ounce skeins, each about 130 yards. By the time you receive it, it will be washed, dried without weights so that it can "bloom", and re-skeined. $24.00 per skein, plus shipping. A little VM, and an occasional knot.

In the photos below, the true color of the dark brown yarn is closer to the "trio" photo than to the closeup. The swatch knitted with the white yarn was knitted on US 4 needles. I have a couple friends experimenting with dyeing the white yarn, and I'll report back!
