What you'll do

You'll be transported to the New Zealand countryside to see the surrounds of our beautiful farm and meet our friendly, naturally coloured Corriedale sheep & lambs (during lambing season).

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you would like to ask. We'll chat about how they are looked after on the farm, the lambs and breeding cycle and how we rescue and carefully feed any orphan lambs. You can even learn a bit about the history of sheep farming in New Zealand.

Next, I'll explain how wool is shorn from the sheep, skirted, washed & dried. Then we will select your choice of wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demonstration on my spinning wheel. There will be lots of opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our friendly, wooly friends or wool processing.

This Experience is great fun for team-building, date nights, get togethers and team building events. Please book a private experience for your group and I'll make sure you have lots of laughs, time to connect with nature and de-stress and learn a bit along the way. Fun for family/friend catch ups too. Message me to schedule your event. Individual bookings and kids groups also welcome.
Other things to note
This experience can be viewed from most devices. A larger screen is probably best to be able to see the outdoors, animals and wool craft in detail.

I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm and process my own wool, lama, possum and alpaca fibre. I am a teacher and enjoy showing guests the basics of fibre preparation, carding, spinning and knitting or felting. I have been knitting since my grandmother taught me as a child and spinning for a few years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres and love to pass this excitement onto others.
Our families have been involved in farming for many generations and are able to provide a unique insight into farm life in NZ.

If you're looking for a glimpse into sheep farming in New Zealand, I highly recommend this experience. Angie was friendly, knowledgeable, and great at breaking the video-call ice with jokes and fun quizzes. She clearly cares deeply about her animals (which are very cute) and is great at explaining complex topics in simple ways.

Angie is the best!! she's thoughtful, hilarious, and makes sure to engage with everyone on the call. I did this as a work team building activity, and I liked it so much that I booked it for my mom's birthday : )

The virtual farm tour was awesome. Angie was friendly and energetic. I really enjoyed observing her cute sheep who were curious about her camera. Especially, I was astonished by her smart and intelligent dog. He showed off his great work (guiding sheep) for us.

Adorable and interesting! My family really enjoyed our time with Angie. We learned things about sheep and New Zealand we never expected to learn. She littlest sheep are so adorable. And her dog is really interesting to watch. It was great to sit and explore a completely different part of the world I haven't seen or experienced. Sparkles is welcome to visit us any time!
