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.

Callin' all Yarnies!
It's time for some knittin' in the shade!
The market is more than Foodie Heaven, it's also a great place for locovore Yarnies! Don't forget to check out the Wheely Wooly Farm booth (stall 58) for all your knitting, crocheting, and weaving projects. Here you'll find skeins of Claire's Watermelon, Posie's Wacky Peachy Pink, Abner's Country Green Apple, and more! And don't forget about our chocolatey browns, creamy beiges, and licorice-y blacks -- all the natural colors we're famous for. The steamy summertime weather is on it's way so check out your patterns, slip on your sandals, and head on down for some Yarnie fun!
Wool see you there!
