flock of Shetland lambs just arrived at WoodsEdge! With
the help of Rare Breeds Survival Trust, a group of 31
Shetland sheep came into North America in 1980 from
the Shetland Isles, and they have increased in population
in the U.S.A ever since! The Shetland fleece has more
variety in color than any other breed of sheep and the
fine fleeces are compatible with alpaca. Any visitor
to the U.K has undoubtedly heard of the wedding ring
shawls that are made from this fleece - these lace shawls
are fine enough to pull through a wedding ring.
Look for more "News from the Ewes" this fall
as we debut some of our Shetland products!
