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.

Frost is coming soon
Enjoy it before they are gone!
All summer long, I spin to a view of flowers near my work space, but those flowers are cut out of the garden with care to ensure more blooms to come. In the fall, things change! With frost looming around the corner, and the flower bed loaded with blooms, it's time to go wild and bring them all in! There are lovely vases all over the house now, filled with the most beautiful array of purples, pinks, and yellows. What a great view out of the corner of my eye as I work!
Hope you enjoy a little perk from these lovely flowers, too!
