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.

More Favorite Things
Socks! These are from our ewe, Sweetie.
Bobbins FULL of wooly yarns in lovely Shetlandy colors!
...and reminders inside of how special sheep are to humanity.
Sheep have been with us historically for thousands of years. Humans and sheep just go together...one of my favorite things!
The holidays are fast approaching! Are you ready? If you need last minute yarn for gifts, just email us and we can help you out! Seems like the midwest will be hit with unruly weather the next few days. Hope all of you have a safe and happy approach to the holidays and be careful out there!
