Shetland

Shetland sheep

Shetland sheep have evolved to survive the harsh environment of the Scottish Islands where they have been traditionally farmed. One of Britain's smallest sheep, with the rams having distinctive curling horns, their wool comes in a wide variety of natural colours traditionaly used for Fair Isle knitting.

By 1977 the Shetland sheep was classed as endangered but by 2008 there were over 800 registered ewes and nearly 300 rams. Today, breeders are focusing on ensuring that the variety of colours and markings is preserved.

The fleeces are dense, fine, soft and silky with natural colours ranging from white, grey, beige, moorit and brown, 11 shades in total. The fleeces are great for hand spinning and make yarn ideal for our soft cuddly bears.
