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.

Shetland Textile Museum is AWESOME!!
Go to Youtube and search for Shetland Textile Museum! You'll see all the lovely colors on my sheep in that video! Lots of blacks, grays, and browns with some whites. Notice the beautiful weaving? Again, lots of blacks, grays, and whites with a little brown. Such beautiful stuff!! How could a person ever get bored with Shetland sheep?
