The Gotland breed of sheep originated in Sweden, and was only recently introduced into the United States. Gotlands are friendly and curious sheep, easygoing and enjoyable to have around the farm.
Gotland sheep are known for having beautiful lustrous wool, which is soft and silky. The wool is perfect for handspinners and fiber artists. Gotland sheep are sheared twice per year, in the late winter and the early fall.
Our Gotland herd consists of 5 ewes and 4 wethers.
We currently have nice pin-drafted roving available. In May we will have yarn in two colors: Gotland Grey and a dark blue. Yarn will be 20% Merino to add softness.
