Raw wool sheep fleeces for hand spinners will be available at the Hadley Farm when workers shear the UMass Amherst flock.

These are Dorset fleeces, and the sheep have been wearing coats since they came into the barn in October and November, so they are free of hay and other debris.

Visitors may also find a ewe to have coated for next year.

Also in stock are the famous EweMass Wool Blankets and yarn, ready for graduation presents.

Contact the shepherd, Alice Newth, at for more information.



From the main UMass Amherst campus, head west on Massachusetts Avenue.  At the end of Massachusetts Aventue, turn left onto North Maple Street and travel approximately 0.6 miles.  The Hadley Farm is located on the left.
