Shetland Sheep - Natural Colors


Shetland Sheep

We strive to raise healthy and happy Shetlands who enjoy ear rubs and grow soft fleeces in a variety of colors: browns, tans, grays, black and white. 

Learn more about this heritage breed at the North American Shetland Sheep Association.

As a member of the Three Rivers Fibershed, we offer a source for locally grown wool while building soil health.


Yarn and Fiber

There is an everchanging inventory of  Fingering, Sport, DK, and Worsted weight yarns. Makers will love the soft and lofty yarn and, when available, the roving and rug yarn, too.

Free samples are offered so the color and texture can be experienced first hand.

The wool is processed by family-owned mills in WI, MN, and the Dakotas. 


Patterns and Kits

The natural colors blend and contrast beautifully for Fair Isle and other colorwork patterns. The yarn also has good structure to show off lace, cables and other stitches.

Kits and quick patterns are a fun way to sample the yarn. Kits are for sale at fiber events.
