Charles City, VA
I raise a flock of Merino sheep on my farm in Virginia. I use the wool to hand weave blankets in my home studio. I combine the naturally colored fleece, in shades of brown, gray and white, with accents of color which I hand-dye using plants, tree bark, and sawdust. I grow many of my own dye plants. Each blanket is numbered, dated and hemmed by hand.
