Welcome to the Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop
web site. Our farm is located just off the Sunrise Trail (Route
6), along the beautiful Northumberland Shore in Pictou County,
Nova Scotia, Canada. We have a working sheep farm with about 300 sheep.
Our sheep are mainly Dorset / Finn crosses which produce a
beautiful soft fleece.
Here at Lismore Sheep Farm we use wool to
create a wide range of products, some of which include ~ wool
blankets, wool filled comforters, wool mattress pads, yarn, hand
knit socks, hats, mitts, etc. We also carry a variety of
sheepskin products ~ mitts, slippers, seatbelt covers, dusters,
insoles. Our washable sheepskins have proven to be extremely
popular for a variety of uses, some of which include ~ floor
rug, chair cover, motorcycle seat, wheelchairs, etc. The farm is
also the home of the River John Needle Company, our new venture
making wooden knitting needles.
During the summer the barn is open for
visitors to see the sheep and lambs up close. There is also an
interpretive display that will interest all ages.
