AMERICAN FIBER: Hudson Valley Sheep & Wool Co.

Hudson Valley Sheep & Wool Co is located in Red Hook, NY, in the gorgeous Hudson Valley just a stone's throw from Rhinebeck, home of the famed New York State Sheep & Wool Festival.
They are a small farm who raise Icelandic, Shetland, and Mohair sheep and produce all their fiber on site.

On Saturday morning, I popped over for cider and doughnuts, to check out the sheep, and of course bring home an armful of locally produced fiber.
