Rosey’s Wool is a shoppe located on a small farm in rural Michigan and now selling online. We started raising sheep in 1987 with a set of Corriedale twins- Lemon and Lavender. The next year we added a Romney ram. The first lamb born in 1990 was Rosey, part Corriedale and part Romney breed.

While Rosey’s Wool business is no longer located on the farm, there is plenty of wool, yarn, supplies, knit and felted products and more, that have moved to my new location. Rosey’s Wool is relocated and open for business at: 780 Oakridge Drive, Jackson, MI 49203
During the winter, the shop will be open most afternoons but please call and make an appointment (517) 879-8672 to schedule a time.
I now have studio space for those that are interested in learning to knit, spin, needle felting, or work with dyes (maybe weaving) or just want to come in and use the equipment (ball winding, wet felting, etc.). If interested, call to schedule a time (517) 879-8672 and I will get them to you.
Over the years, a small flock of sheep of varied breeds including Romney, Corriedale, Merino and Cotswold rams and ewes were raised on the farm. The purebred Cotswolds were my favorite to raise, spin the silky wool to yarn, and make felted clothing. Cotswold sheep are a rare and endangered sheep and increasingly hard to find.
Purebred Corriedale and purebred Merino sheep (Greenfield Village breed strain) were continued with a commitment to raising organic sheep, free ranged, on rotated pasture.
After 35 years of raising sheep, they are being managed by younger generations of sheep herders in different locations, but, I am continuing to make wool products for the shoppe from those sheep.
The processing of wool is done at Zeilinger Wool Company, Frankenmuth. MI or Hoof to Hanger Woolen Mill in Bridgman, MI. The washable sheepkins are processed at Bucks County Furs in Pennsylvania.
