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.

Nice Market, Nice Snow, Nice Warm Up

Saturday was a really nice day at the market!  The roads were clean, the sun was out, and even though it was nearly zero degrees, people were ready to come out and shop.  The dyed yarns were very popular as knitters everywhere are looking for bright colors to cheer up the winter blahs.  Claire and Posie's yarns were the hot items of the morning!

Yesterday, we had several inches of powdery snow.  This was a very polite little snowstorm with just a little wind, and it was fairly fast moving through our area.  It's beautiful out there today...considering it's winter.

Today, we are having a beautiful warm up FOR ONCE! lol  It will get above freezing for the first time in weeks.  The weather data is overwhelming...more snow than usual, more sub-zero days than usual, more this and that.  It's been quite a winter.

Unless we have a disasterous spring, the change in seasons this year will be very sweet!
