Weavings, rugs, hand-spun yarns, chair caning

A little something about us

Welcome!

 

I come from a 4 generation family who has worked  primarily in creating traditional rag rugs and textured rugs.  I still weave the traditional rugs, but now, I also weave rugs, décor mats, runners,etc from our own Jacob Sheep, Navajo Churro Sheep and Alpaca fibers and various other wools & llama fiber.


My family own "Faircloth Farms"Raising/breeding quality Jacob Sheep and Navajo Churro sheep in Central Iowa

The Jacob is a rare breed of sheep that produces a wonderful black & white wool. This breed of sheep has a very interesting history and is a very hardy sheep.  The Navajo Churro is also a rare breed and has a very unique wool, that is wonderful for spinning!


We are a member of Shave Em" to Save Em"  Group, which is a part of the "Livestock Conservancy Organization: www.livestockconservancy.org.

I have wools/rovings/fleeces available to members of this organization/group.  Contact us for further information.



We have packaged fiber and skeins of yarn available from the Sheep, as well as our alpaca and also some llama fiber.

 

All of our spun yarn is done the "old fashioned" way - by hand!

 

Rugs and other items are always on hand so if you are unable to make it to any shows and are interested in an item - feel free to contact us. We are proud of our creations and love to share them!
