The Camino Family has been operating The KID Ranch in Johnson County for four generations. They raise premium natural Rambouillet lambs in the mountains and wide open spaces of northern Wyoming. They are committed to sound animal husbandry and sustainable agricultural practices. The sheep are handled with care and raised the way we believe nature intended: on lush pastures, with plenty of clear, clean water. Their dedication to the land and the lambs they produce guarantees that their fiber is among the purest in the world.
The Pheasant ranch or “9 mile ranch” is located in Southern Johnson County near Kaycee, Wyoming. Bruce Pheasant is the owner of this 3rd generation ranch. His grandfather started with Rambouillet sheep in the early 1900’s and now Bruce raises Cormo and dabbles with the California Red breed. He cares about the viability of the ranch and works hard to improve the wool with breeding. His Cormo wool is sought after by many for its softness and length. “This lifestyle, you can’t beat it,” Pheasant says staring out over his ranch toward the Bighorn Mountains. “It gets in your blood.”
The Little Ranch Co. Over 100 years ago in 1914, Philip Sheridan Little Sr. built a homestead 20 miles east of Buffalo, Wyoming along the banks of Clear Creek. Later in 1960, his son Phil and wife Glory Little began raising Rambouillet and Suffolk sheep breeds. Today, Phil and Glory Little work diligently with their grandson’s Kellen and Sheridan to raise their quality fiber. The Little Family’s 21 micron, white Rambouillet, is a soft, yet durable yarn.
