Fiber Art Studio & Learning Center

Art in Fiber... handwoven scarves in chenille or wool.Elizabeth's fiber arts studio features hand­crafted apparel items, scarves, blankets and shawls. We also sell white combed Corriedale top and carded roving, wool quilt and blanket batts (bassinet to king size) made from wool home-grown right here on the farm.   Check our wool products pricing page for current prices.  If you have a question or problem about anything related to rearing sheep, fiber arts or our other products, whether you bought from us or not, ask us and we will get right back to you, or, if you are in the Lexington area, feel free to visit Elizabeth's  Fiber Art Studio and Learning Center at the farm. 

It is always a good idea to call first to assure that we will be available, since we are a working farm.  Virtual visitors to the farm can e-mail us for information at: saville@savillehillfarm.com.  Check our Fiber Arts Workshop page for available open dates.


Registered Corriedale Sheep

American Corriedale Association registered breeding stock is always available from the farm: including brood ewes and stud rams and lambs. Here at the farm, we operate a closed Corriedale flock.  If you are looking for good stock, to either strengthen your Corriedale flock or simply looking to infuse improved genetics in your commercial flock, we can provide both brood ewes and stud rams that can help.  Check out the details of our recent Lamb Production here at the farm: showing a 211 percent yield with a uniform distribution of multiples.  You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get good performance.  Our prices are available on-line.  Write or call for a full description of the flock registry and a listing of what stock is currently available.

All breeding stock is guaranteed to be healthy and fertile. We also have limited market and project lambs available each spring.  We have been developing our flock since 1995, and we currently have over twenty brood ewes selected for their wool quality and quantity as well as lamb production:  triplets and twins are the norm. Our current breeding rams are sons or grandsons out of ‘Ed,’ who was out of National Grand Champion Style Setter Legacy. These award winning fleeces are of superior quality and we have infused this quality into the flock over the past fifteen years.

Our ewes produce lustrous medium to fine fleeces that are excellent for hand spinning by either the beginning or experienced spinner.  We have finished shearing for the 2008 season, and we still have fleeces available for general sale this year.  We also frequently have partial fleeces left from our spinning workshops.  Also, we carry some very nice white Corriedale wool top and card­ed roving, pro­duced from fleeces home-grown right here on the farm.  Check with us for current availably.


Rescued Working Dogs

We are down to several rescued working dogs... some are retired, some still work the flock, but mostly, they enjoy life here on the farm... weather permitting, a truck full will enjoy a ride down to the pond for a dip or play a game of Frisbee or a catch ball or a run with the stick (the record is five on a single stick while running full tilt)!  Take a moment and check out our walk about the farm...

Visit the Farm and Studio

In the spring, it's always a kick to walk along our pasture fences and see the ewes with their lambs frolicking in the fields! We welcome visitors to the farm at any time, but outside of regularly scheduled shop hours, a call for an appointment is always appreciated. Our apologies to those who find this a bother, but we are a working farm, and it's difficult to predict what we're likely to be up to our elbows into at any given moment.  We will also host a limited number of school tour groups by reservation only.

Please give us a call or send us an e-mail, saville@savillehillfarm.com, if you are interested in arranging a school tour and fiber art demonstration.

Walking and Hiking Trails

Also available are several woodland walking and hiking trails for your enjoy­ment. A copy of our descrip­tive walking guide is avail­able by clicking here for the trail guide or ask for a copy at the Farm and Studio office.  Bring comfortable shoes!
