Nestled in the valley of the Susquehanna River is White Rose Acres; home to Flying Fibers Flock. Flying Fibers Flock consists of Jeri’s rare breed North American Wensleydale sheep, and Irina’s endangered Leicester Longwool sheep and Satin Angora rabbits. All of the products that come from the farm are PA Preferred, and any purchase of the farm products supports each rare breed animal's preservation. The PA Preferred program was created to ensure that Pennsylvanians are supporting fellow Pennsylvanians. By purchasing products made in PA you are making a difference by restoring pride in our homegrown products and helping our economy.
Together this mother-daughter team strives to bring excellent quality products to the public, as well as preserve rare breed animals through education. Look for their flock fiber in-store and online, along with some handspun yarns.
