Our farm mission is to enjoy and promote the wonderful diversity of the Shetland breed by fully utilizing to the best of our ability all they have to offer historically. We believe the best preservation and management of this breed includes it's full spectrum of history. We encourage old and new shepherds alike to join in the fun by engaging in fiber arts, especially spinning and knitting, as this breed is so intimately linked with those aspects of the arts.

Genuine Shetland Lace Patterns
Does anyone out there know of a reasonably small lace pattern repeat that was designed in the Shetland Islands? I am planning on making a lace scarf with Wooly Bear's lovely fleece to save as a keepsake in our farm's collection. I have found some, but would like to find as many as I can before I make a final choice. I'm looking for a charted pattern, small enough for a few repeats across. If you know of one, you can email me at my address shown at the top right of my blog, just under Wooly Bear's picture.
