About the Sheep

This is from a Shetland Sheep Ewe. She is a hardy and lively sheep, with a famously soft wool. These sheep do not respect fences, and we've seen them jump straight over a 3ft hurdle! The wool used in the making of this yarn predominantly comes from White Shetland Sheep.

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.
