Brown Sheep Company stands on Mitchell, Nebraska farmland that has been in the family for over 100 years. Originally a sheep farm, then a family-owned and operated wool mill, Brown Sheep proudly carries on the traditions of perseverance, adaptability, and character. Peggy Jo Wells is the fourth generation owner and runs the mill with her husband Robert, their grown son, Andrew, and his wife Brittany. They have a state-of-the-art facility that carries out the entire process of yarn processing from roving to finished product. The Pima cotton and merino are sourced from Peru. This is a family who lives on the land and works in the mill every day. They create impeccable product in beautiful colors, fibers, and structures. Robert, who is a Ph.D. radiation biologist, engineered an extensive wastewater treatment system to ensure there is no environmental impact to their dye process. They are impressive, knowledgeable, hard-working, and, true to their reputation, incredibly authentic and kind. These are the people we are excited to work with and support.
