Spinning

One of the benefits of our Shetlands is that they produce high quality fleeces in a variety of natural colours.

Shearing will be at the end of May or early June depending on the weather.

We have a spinning wheel and spin our own yarn which is great for Beanie hats.

The yarn is washed but retains much of its lanolin so it is warm and water resistant.

We can arrange spinning lessons and provide some fleece it you would like to give it a try during your stay.

Welcome To Brittany Farm Holidays

Our tiny farm is beautifully situated in the peaceful hamlet of Trevenec close to Carnoët and La Vallée des Saints in Central Brittany. It has stunning views over the surrounding countryside and the Foret Dominiale de Freau. We have small flocks of Shetland and Lande de Bretagne Sheep which lamb in spring and early summer. The sheep provide a variety of natural coloured fleece for spinning into yarn. Our goats are pets and are very friendly; we also have free range hens which provide fresh "tasty" eggs for us and our guests.
