Lindsey and Susan Rice met in NH 4-H as youth. Lindsey’s main project area was sheep, he had an award winning flock of Hampshires and Susan’s was clothing, and was a state award winner and had received national recognition. Lindsey was a sheep shearer on his days off as a professional firefighter in Salem, NH and the family traveled thru New England shearing sheep and other fiber animals. This led to the creation of the first business, Have Ewe Any Wool? and eventually evolved into the purchase of Bartlettyarns about 11 years ago. The Rices had been customers of Bartlettyarns for approximately 25 years before that, participating in several farmers markets offering many different products from their 175 acre farm in the seacoaast of NH and major wool festivals during those years. The Rices along with their children are involved with many sheep and wool festivals, wool pools and various educational talks.
