Located in the small hamlet of Medusa in the Catskill mountains of New York State, our farm has been in the family since the early 1930's. Last year, we officially "retired" from actively raising sheep, although we lease our barn and fields to neighboring shepherds. We still have yarn, honey, and other wool products for sale, and visit local farmers markets and festivals regularly. To learn more about the history of our farm, check out the rest of our site!

From Ewe to You
Our wool is from our small flock of sheep. Each spring we shear, and the raw wool is shipped off to a mill in Maine to be cleaned, carded, spun, and dyed into skeins of our 100% wool yarn, Our yarn is ideal for all your knitting, crocheting, and fiber craft needs. In 4 ounce skeins (measuring approximately 210 yards), our 2 ply yarn comes in many colors. Visit our wool page to see them all.
Don't forget to check out our patterns - we're one of the only sources online for Yankee Knitter Designs, a series of classic knitting patterns that knit perfectly with our own wool yarn. Choose from a selection of sweaters, vests, hats, mittens, socks, and more in both adult and child sizes!
For spinning and other fiber crafts, we have wool roving in both natural and dark colors. We've also made some of our wool into cloth-covered batting which is perfect for creating comforters or quilts.
In addition, we produce honey and beeswax products from our own beehives.
If you are interested in raising sheep, we sell lambs, including registered Horned Dorset, Romney and colored wool sheep.
Peace Fleece is not your typical yarn company. The Peace Fleece office is a barn on a sheep farm in Maine. Peter Hagerty and his wife Marty Tracy started buying wool from the Soviet Union back in 1985 in hopes that through trade they could help diffuse the threat of nuclear war. Since then they have worked with shepherds in Russia, Kyrgyzia, Israel and the West Bank, as well as in Montana, Ohio, Texas and Maine.
By working with people who tend livestock every day, they hope to find a common ground that slowly leads to mutual understanding and economic interdependence. Peace Fleece sells knitting yarns as well as knitting and felting accessories.
