Doc Mason is a veterinarian living in the hills of New Hampshire. His farm is a stockdog training facility, with 30 to 40 sheep whose job is to train and rehabilitate working sheep dogs. I collect their fleeces, currently Cheviot and Clun Forest, and have it milled at MacAusland’s on Prince Edward Island. The mill adds in a mix of Maritime wool to meet their minimum for a full run.

The wool is toasty warm and medium weight, perfect for hats, mittens, and New England style rustic sweaters. It suits many gauges: I like to work it at 3.5 to 4 stitches per inch. There are 210 yards in one 4 ounce skein.
