If you’d like to see more photos and video of the farm and all the yarns we’re creating, you can find us on Instagram as westcoastcolour, we like to share more about our flock, what’s new on our needles, wheels and looms, and all the colours we’ve got gently bubbling away in the dye pots. We hope you’ll give us a follow or stop by to say hello.
A little Bit About us
My husband and I have been in the textile industry for over 20 years. Somehow, I was able to convince my husband we should own a yarn store, which throughout the years was located in several different locations in Vancouver’s lower mainland. (Lynne) We closed the doors to Knitopia in White Rock year ? and bought a 20 acre farm further inland, packed up the stash, moved in a flock CVMs and Shropshire sheep and became fleece farmers.
It has been a life-long dream of ours. to wake up every morning to look over our pastures After 25 years as an ER nurse in Peace Arch Hospital I - ? Bio by Lynne would be preferred. Talk about dye work.
We are located near the Shuswap Lake in Tappen, British Columbia Canada. We care for a flock of CVM and Shropshire sheep on our 22 acre property and are shamelessly fuelled by coffee.
We are vegetarians, which means we keep sheep just for their fleeces, hence the name fleece farmers. Our sheep live out long lives in the pastures under our care. Sheep can produce beautiful fleeces for many years as long as they remain healthy and happy. And are also full of personality, like any dog or cat, we enjoy getting to spend many years getting to know each other and making lots of yarn.
If you would like to know more about how life is going on the farm, please have a look in our farm journal to read more!
In the future, once some renovations are complete, we hope to open a retail store on the property and have scheduled farm tours. We will keep you updated!
If you have any questions about anything at all, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line and we’ll get back to you as soon as the chores are done.
