Such a great spring – such a great lambing season!
“Flower” a white romeldale ewe with
her cvm twin lambs.
“May” is a moorit cvm ewe and very proud
of her ewe lamb.
The 2017 crop of purebred ARCR registered CVM-Romeldale lambs has been outstanding
17 ewes produced 33 lambs that were sired by an impressive Romeldale ram
with a micron count of 20.7.
It’s a little early to brag about the lambs’ wool but so far they do seem to have inherited their sire’s fineness.
If you think you would like to add a cvm-romeldale lamb to your flock now would be a good time to get on the wait list.

I think you will enjoy them both.
I never really believed in dryer balls…until I tried them.
As a natural fabric softener these dryer balls reduce wrinkles, reduce drying time and reduce static.
And if you add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a dryer ball, you will have fabulously scented towels and sheets (and laundry room).
Handmade from cvm wool, angora wool and mohair (these are kind of designer balls), they are all natural, eco-friendly and affordable.
In natural colors of white, gray, brown and charcoal.
Or hand dyed in soft pastel colors.
add 3-4 balls to your dryer and enjoy!
for sale on Etsy
