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.

The Colors of Spring
Purple and spring just go together!
Oh, I can hardly resist this yarn! The purple is a lovely color to work with for winter-weary eyes. You can purchase this yarn direct from our Etsy shop. Find the link to our shop on the right side of our blog, in the yellow text. There are three skeins available.
Yellow IS spring, isn't it?
These musical, whistling little ducklings are SUCH a delight! With pouring rain falling against the window and wind rattling things outside, it is such a special delight to have these little creatures dabbling away under the warmth of their lamp!
You know what else is good about pouring rain? CLEAN sheep! lol
Be sure to check out the beautiful yarns in our Etsy shop and don't miss out for your spring knitting!
