The Shetland Islands are in the northern most part of Scotland. Shetland sheep are thought to have been brought to Scotland by the Viking settlers. This remote island location has played an important part in preserving the ancestral population of Shetland Sheep. White is a dominant color in Shetlands, but the sheep can be black, brown toned grey, shaela (dark silvery grey), medium or light silvery grey, ivory, fawn, mioget (golden honey colored), moorit (reddish brown) or dark brown.

Just incredible

I just received my 2 lb grab bag and I'm blown away ! Quite a few of the pieces are huge and the rest are sizeable enough to either be spun by themselves or carded with others to make beautiful, colorful batts. This is my first but certainly not my last order. It's well worth the cost even at the regular price.
