Welcome to Lucy’s Sheep Camp located in Thermopolis, Wyoming.
My name is Billie Jo Norsworthy and I’m proud to be part of Wyoming’s ranching tradition. My family has been ranching on this land for several generations and we are fortunate to be stewards of beautiful Copper Mountain. This is land that once belonged to Lucy Morrison Moore – “The Sheep Queen of Wyoming.” It’s the spirit of Lucy and the wonder of this majestic land that inspires my dye colors and love of my sheep. May you find the legacy and lore….the creation and color….and the wonder of Wyoming in my work.
I believe that my wools are the finest available. They are hand-dyed primarily using wildflowers as inspiration. I use a combination of Gay Wool, Cushing's, and Jacquard dyes. After shearing, the fleeces are skirted, then sent to The Shepherd's Mill in Kansas to be processed.
After the yarn, roving or felt returns to us, I dye everything in the back room/bathroom/storage room. In the summer months, all of my dye work is set with the intense Wyoming sun. The dye color combinations are inspired by my childhood love of wildflowers.
It is my sincere hope that my hand-dyed Wyoming wool products will bring some of Copper Mountain's beauty into your life. From the sheep that graze...to the wildflowers that grace...please Enjoy and Create!
