The Reiland Farm and Shoppe
Our shoppe and studio is located at the farm so that visitors can acquaint themselves with some of our beautiful fibers and products.
Our llama wool is available in a variety of colors from white to black and every shade in between, such as browns, reds, and grays. It displays a variety of types including dual coated types with a shorter, downy undercoat and guard hair, or a more uniform coat where the guard hair is so close to the down in character that it is difficult to discern.
Llama wool can be spun alone or blended with sheep's wool to improve elasticity. It will also take dye easily
to expand your color variety. Mohair is the fiber produced by our Angora Goats. Mohair is silky, lustrous and
strong and can be everything from fine to coarse. It is easy to spin alone and makes wonderful novelty yarns but
is generally spun mixed with another fiber. Mohair can be combed, carded alone or in a blend. White mohair, such
as our goats produce, takes dye readily and still shines. Our sheep also produce a variety of types and colors
of wool for spinning. The llama wool, mohair and sheep wool are available in raw form, washed, or ready for spinning.
For the doll maker, we have carefully selected mohair and wool locks for that special doll. These are available, both natural or custom dyed.
For the discriminating knitter, we have developed a wool/mohair 2 ply yarn, spun from our fiber, that comes in its natural color or hand dyed. Also offered is a limited supply of 2 ply yarn, spun from our own llama fiber and also a selection of other fine yarns.
|This shoppe is not just for the fiber enthusiast; there are a variety of finished products for you to choose from. We feature wool filled comforts, Christmas creations, shawls, sweaters and hats, sheep and goat hides, and a variety of rugs, hand woven from wool roving, wool locks, cotton loopers and blanket salvage. Custom chair seat weaving, caning and rushing are also a specialty. We always have a nice selection of county crafts and special gifts created by local artisans to surprise the most discerning visitor.|
