Hyer Wools & Our Beautiful Finnsheep
Hyer Wools is delighted to be part of the long history of New Mexico sheep and we're proud to participate in the heritage of New Mexico wool and fiber craft. As a part of this heritage, we enjoy living a life that reflects these ethics.
Be a good neighbor
Freely share what we know
Do it ourselves
Live gently on the earth
We are experienced Finn sheep breeders. We love Finn sheep and think you will too. Finns are a great choice for backyard flocks and commercial flocks can increase fertility by incorporating the breed. Finnsheep wool is lovely and perfectly adapted to handspinning and wool crafting of all kinds.
Hyer Wools has hardy Finnsheep breeding stock for sale. We also have Finnsheep wool and prepared Finn wool roving for sale.
Shearing the wool from sheep is physically demanding and requires knowledge and skill. This fact is amplified for blade shearing.
Kerry is one of just a handful of people who practices the traditional custom of shearing sheep with hand shears or blades. This process is quieter, more deliberate and careful, and far less stressful - primarily for the sheep, but the owners certainly don't complain either! If you need a sheep shearer in New Mexico, contact us.
