About DWF


Home of “farm fresh fiber”. You will “know  your fiber” as all fiber products include the name of the animal(s) that produced it as well as the type of fiber – you won’t get that from a commercial store! Since the late 1990’s I’ve run a small NJ farm producing 100% USA made, one of a kind fiber products. Most of my animals are rescues or seniors living full happy lives on the farm. All products are made using fiber from my animals or combined with fiber purchased from other small USA farmers. Hand made products are made in Hunterdon County, NJ. To learn more about natural fibers please take a look at my “Fiber Facts” brochure.

Contact me if you would like to pick up products at the farm.

Fleeces,
Skins & Other Items

Fleeces:
Fleeces lose 30-50% of their weight when washed. I only sell washed fleeces (unless by special  arrangement) to ensure you receive the highest quality fiber ready to use. Many fiber faults are easily overlooked in a raw fleece and thus to avoid  disappointments I prefer to sell only high quality, low VM, clean fleeces. Raw wool always available for fly tying lures; please email for a quote based on how much you need. Washed wool for stuffing is also available.

Mohair Fleeces

Mohair Fleeces

Sheep fleeces available include: Shetland (white, grey, brown), Blue Faced Leicester (white), Grey Wensleydale x Romney, Grey Romney.

Skins (sadly my animals do not live forever):
Cream kid mohair (1 year old – Mocha),
Grey adult mohair (13 years old – Jewel, would make nice gloves).
Both have a short staple length (1″ at most), and are small in size.
$50 each plus shipping.

Sheepskins sold out.

Pot Woolies: $1 for a quart bag (plus shipping), raw wool for use in the bottom of your pots or planters to provide drainage, aeration and natural fertilizer for your plants.

Organic Catnip: $3/ ounce (plus shipping).
Cat tested and approved by Dancing Waters Farm’s Ozzie and Jasper. Never sprayed with pesticides and only naturally fertilized by the chickens. I would not give my cats catnip that had been sprayed with anything!!

Hand Hooked Rooster Rug Using Handspun and Millspun Mohair/ Wool Yarn

Hand Hooked Rooster Rug Using Handspun and Millspun Mohair/ Wool Yarn


Yarn

Hand spun:
Natural (white, cream, dark and light grey, single color or mixed color plies ie-tweed), Hand painted: Navajo (3) ply
Mill spun: My fibers or my fibers combined with fibers from other small USA farmers, washed here on the farm and processed by Zeilinger’s in Frankenmuth MI, Cloudberry in NJ, Spinderella’s in Utah, Sweitzer’s or Gurdy Run in PA. Unlike  other yarn sources, when you buy from Dancing Waters Farm you’ll know exactly which fiber type and animal produced the fiber and where it was processed in each step to the final fiber product.

Natural colors:
2 ply white, grey, cream, and white/cream; 1 ply white, cream. Hand dyed also available.
Pricing: $5/ounce for millspun plus shipping. Most yarn is best suited for outerwear such as sweaters or mittens, for braiding, or for weaving rugs, as mohair is the most durable natural fiber, and most yarns contain mohair from goats more than 3 years of age. See the specific yarn description for suggested uses as some products contain kid or yearling mohair and fine wools.
