Welcome to Shepherd's Croft Farm in beautiful
Bucks County, Pennsylvania,
where we produce
fine sheep and outstanding spinning fleeces.
are breeders of American Miniature Cheviot sheep
We sell lambs, raw wool, roving, and wool products.
Toni and Pete Kellers,
At The Croft our foundation flock
consists of registered American Miniature Cheviots, both dilute black and white. These wonderful little sheep have excellent
fleeces for hand-spinners. Dilute Black is our term for the colored mini Cheviots that we breed. Their wool appears to be
a heathery grey when carded, but it is actually a combination of white and black fibers. In photos it may look somewhat light
brown, but that is sun-bleaching and does not affect the carded color. We have occasionally dyed the white fleeces, with excellent
results. But recently Toni experimented with dying the dilute black and the color was fabulous! The white fibers picked up
the dye and the black fibers toned it down to a luscious jewel tone! What a delightful surprise!
