A Diversified Fiber Enterprise
Avillion Farm was established in 1995
in the beautiful piedmont area of North
Carolina. In the heart of the rapidly growing Research Triangle, we raise shetland sheep, angora goats, and angora rabbits for their fiber - wool, mohair and angora, respectively. We are pleased to offer sound healthy sheep, goats and rabbits for sale as breeding stock or fiber pets.
I have found few activities as satisfying as spinning the wool from my own animals into yarns that I can then sell directly or make into unique accessories and gift items. I learned to felt in 1999 and this has offered yet another creative use for our fibers. Felting is the process by
which protein animal fibers are made
into a non-woven fabric, unlike other
fabrics which are made from spun yarns. When wool fibers are subjected to heat, pressure, agitation, moisture and soap, they bond together. The felt produced can be made into toys, accessories, clothing and rugs.
