Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles
Shetland Sheep: Rich in History, Rich in Textiles! 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.

Out of all the debate within our breed, I am SOOOOO thankful for the 2004 Handbook, old newsletters, and telephone numbers that take me directly to the real thing. If I had to learn from this "new" information given out by the breeders who push all the "new" info., "new" history, and "classic" lambs, I might not have ever found the true Shetland fiber.
