Everything starts with these beautiful creatures. Although they are a part of our past physically, they remain a part of our present in many other ways.
In the early days of acquiring our first spinning wheel, daydreaming about owning sheep naturally followed. We got way more than we bargained for.
We started with three tame bottle fed lambs...triplet sisters. One thing led to another and after a few years of springtime lambs we had our flock of ten wonderful sheep.
Through learning about shepherding, birthing, shearing, unexpected catastrophes and the simple joy of hearing familiar 'baaaa's on a moonlit night, our life direction pivoted. Since then, wool (in one form or another) occupies every single day. When the time came to start a company devoted to woolly pursuits, we believed that the company name must go back to the originators of our wool obsession. Ten Good Sheep exists today because of everything we learned from our namesakes.
We are grateful to have had the opportunity to be shepherds.
Our sheep changed our lives for the better.
