Our petite flock of Shetland sheep provide us with wool, meat, conservation grazing, and farm fertility.
Their sweet natures pair beautifully with great browsing ability and virtually odorless manure that is beneficial to maintaining and enhancing our soil fertility.
Shetland sheep are are a breed of hardy little sheep with a soft wool that comes in almost every possible natural color. Many people who find wool to be irritating to their skin discover that wearing clothing made from the wool of Shetland sheep is warm, comfortable, and not itchy at all.
Babydoll Southdown wool is short (about 2 to 3 inches) and springy, soft and bouncy, with a surprisingly strong underlying disposition. When spun it produces yarn with a lot of cushion and elasticity. Since it has more barbs per inch than other wool types, it is also ideal to blend with angora or other slick fibers since it clings so well. Babydoll wool has good durability and is great for socks, mittens, hats, blankets, and sweaters. It is also fantastic for needle-felting!
