Books & Sheep, Inc. Here on the historic farm owned by the Wise and Bauer families, Susan and her team raise Angora goats and Leicester Longwool sheep (a heritage breed once raised by George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, though tragically the thrilling “Sheep Rap” was cut from the final draft of the Hamilton musical). The unique custom blend of Angora and Leicester fleeces produces a silky-smooth, warm wool yarn. Visit our Etsy store to try our luxurious blended sport yarns for your next project. Raw fleeces, roving, lambs and kids are also available seasonally.
