The Process

1. Paddock

The sheep graze and browse in the paddock all year round, and are moved on to fresh pasture regularly, typically a few times a week.

2. Shearing

The sheep are shorn annually by professional shearers, usually in late spring or early summer. It takes about two weeks to shear them all, and it's the busiest time of the year. The wool is classed, then pressed into bales, with only the best few bales going for yarn.
