EweMass Wool Blankets Available for Purchase for Limited Time


Once again, the EweMass wool blankets are for sale. Enjoy the warmth from UMass Amherst sheep and help support animal science student activities and the livestock program.

Several sizes of blankets are available, including queen, full, long throw, lap throw and sometimes kings. Quantities are limited.

They are a gray-and-white plaid, make outstanding gifts and will last a very long time. Yarn is also available in gray and a natural white that is easily dyed.

Photos, information and a printable order form are online here or contact Alice Newth, livestock barn manager at the Hadley Farm, at newth@vasci.umass.edu if you have questions. 

In April, a few coated fleeces will be for sale to handspinners at shearing time. Contact Newth if interested. A Hadley Farm fleece won first place in the fine wool class at the Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft Fair in May.
