About the yarns: we don't call ourselves Wheely Wooly Shetland Sheep Farm because from the very beginning years ago, I've enjoyed spinning many types of fleeces. When naming our farm, I wanted a name that covered handspun yarns that was non-breed specific. Therefore, you will discover amongst our yarns fibers from a variety of breeds, but mostly Shetland because they are hands down my favorite to spin! I'll start with some Coopworth and East Friesian (from our ewe Claire) and then progress to Shetland, some from our flock, and some from fibers I've carefully sourced. We have a wonderful range of Shetland fiber to choose from, with colors that blend so beautifully with each other, or with the dyed colors (which you'll see towards the photos at the end)! The skeins are all sold by weight, with sizes ranging from one to nearly four ounces. Gauge ranges are based on your knitting personality! General gauge will be posted. Gauges that are near each other (for example light worsted and worsted) can be successfully paired using needle and/or tension skills. The gauge changes can also add lacy affects to garments. Prices start at $10.00 and up per skein, based on weight. Price does not include sales tax or shipping.

Ready? Have fun and here we go!
P.S. Yes it's true, for those of you who know her, little Hepatica went to school last night as an ambassador before an audience of about 75 people! She did a great job, except for that little part where she almost chewed on the microphone cord...:)
