About the Sheep

This yarn is from a Boreray Sheep. This is the rarest of all native British Sheep. They originate from the St Kilda Archipelago on the west coast of Scotland. Our Boreray sheep are very hardy and thrifty, but they do enjoy a good handful of sheep nuts as a treat.

We are fortunate to have a small flock of our own Boreray Sheep, which produce this unique yarn.

Thank you for supporting our family farm.

The funny thing about Moorit Sheep

The funny thing about Moorit (brown) sheep is that on our farm, at least they stick together in a group. Even if they are in a larger flock of sheep, when you need to move them or there is any danger, the Moorits will always be together.
