Natasha and her family operate the Lamb of God organic family farm in Big Rock, Illinois. The grow and sell unusual and ethnic varieties of produce. Her brother Eric runs the poultry end of the farm, offering fresh laid eggs from free-range chickens. Natasha is spinning yarn using a fleece sheared from one of her Cheviot sheep. The wool is first washed to remove the lanolin, carded and then spun into yarn. I think she'll be offering spinning classes next winter. I'm excited to learn this relaxing craft.
