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.

Angie is such a sweet and kind host! I booked this experience for a work social and the process from asking her questions about the experience to the actual experience itself was great. This was my first time doing an airbnb experience, so I really appreciated how well Angie worked with me in organizing this event. The tour itself was also so lovely-- my coworkers and I had a great time learning about her sheep and we all loved her jokes and energy.

I booked this for a company bonding experience and was blown away! Angie had us laughing the entire time while keeping us fully engaged and learning everything we wanted to know about sheep! Angie is a real pro at carrying a zoom call and directing engagement. I can’t recommend this experience enough. Was such a blast! A great escape and a great time for all!

It was very fresh experience for me. I am born and grow up in the city. I have never been to a sheep farm and get so close to sheep. Even though it’s just a virtual tour, I feel like I am there being around with the sheep and touching their comfortable wool. And Angie offers a lot of knowledge about sheep and wool. I can’t wait to visit her farm once the pandemic is over.

Between informations, stories of daily life and puns, you will never get bored with this experience! We had a great time with Angie and her sheep, horses, chickens, ducks, ... of all shapes and colours. We learnt many new things and even won a few sheep :)

This was such a fun experience! It was so cool to learn about the process of creating wool products from the source. Angie is very funny and an awesome host! I only wish I could do it again in person.
