2021 NJ Fibershed Blanket Project
Smiling Dog Farm is proud to be a participant in the NJ Fibershed Blanket Project by providing fleeces from our flock of Gotland sheep.
The NJ Fibershed Blanket is a cooperative project by small farm members of the NJ Fibershed. Fleeces from participating farms are pooled, shipped to the processing mill for washing and spinning into yarn, then woven into blankets. The wool used in producing the blankets is sourced entirely from farms in the New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania region, and must meet criteria for quality to ensure the final product is of the highest quality, beautiful, and enjoyable to own.
Blankets will be available for purchase in late 2021 or early 2022. For more information about the NJ Fibershed Blanket, click here
