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.

Happy Wool Year!
As wool becomes an increasingly popular fabric of choice for warmth, ease of movement, and good health, we here at Wheely Wooly Farm are stepping up to meet your needs! Our flock of genuine Shetland sheep work hard grazing, leaping, and chewing cud all year to bring you those amazing yarns that have become your favorites. In a time of flu troubles and wild climate woes, why wear cold clothes when you can wear warm clothes, right? Lucky us that have figured that out! lol
The benefits of wool are black and white, and right before our eyes!
Wheely Wooly Farm has a VERY busy year planned ahead...I think it's pretty safe to say the shepherds will not be ruminating in the pastures with the sheep much this summer.
Wool really does hang from trees around here!
We wish you all a very happy new year full of the fun, hopes and dreams the promise of a new year brings! Hug every buddy, laugh, snuggle up in your cozy wool, and put those dreams to work till the warmer days return. It indeed is going to be a Happy Wool Year!
