The SVF Foundation in Newport, Rhode Island, in conjunction with Tufts University School of Veterinary Medicine, has been working on the Smithsonian & SVF Biodiversity Preservation Project. In Summer 2019 they gathered together their first batch of Karakuls for the rare breed cryopreservation project; rams and ewes were purchased for collection of semen, eggs, and embryos.

In order to make room for the 2020 batch of Karakuls, SVF needs to sell their 2019 Karakul stock. Sarah Bowley, Program Manager compiled a list, and Deborah, Alliance Registrar added a little info to hopefully make the selection process easier.

Support this project and see which Karakuls will fit your breeding program!

Sarah Bowley has made it clear that she is willing to negotiate to ensure animals are placed correctly into conservation-based flocks. Take a look at the list!

Julia DeVlieg offers for sale      Ad Re-Posted !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~  A 45″ CRANBROOK Countermarche Floor Loom   $3,800

Almost New Condition, Slightly Used   Serial #:  C4580 231 983

I purchased this with the intention of learning to weave using my beautiful Karakul fleeces. But farming, family, sheep, the Karakul Registry, and felting took all my time. So weaving never happened and now my interest, and energy, are gone.

It is a beautiful machine. Living in southern Michigan, I purchased it around 1977. We moved it to Rice, WA in 1983.  It has been kept safe and dry all these years. We just recently unpacked and assembled the basic structure to verify the integrity of the maple pieces. Still packaged, other wooden parts were checked over and counted by a friend who is an experienced weaver. Included is the bench, a warping board frame, and possibly a few more accessories that ‘I know not what they are!’

Factory assembly instructions comes with the loom. A 5-page PDF with design details and history story of Cranbrook Looms is available here.

Email and we’ll discuss shipping.
