Memorial Day Weekend - Hand-dyed Summer Yarns

We are preparing for the summer shows. New yarns are in the making. We are curious, waiting for brand new Gotland yarns made by Waitsburg Woolworks, WA. Also, our colour mixes are now available in a limited edition Merino wool. Visit our webshop and order on-line.

Gotland Breed Standard

Breed standard & Selection in Our flock The Swedish breed standard translated in english with some comments is now posted on our website. Go to Gotland Sheep / Breed Standard. This is the standard used in our flock as the minimum requirement for selection of breeding rams and ewes. The main breeding goal in Sweden is to develop the unique qualities of the furskin. Since the international market also requires a high accuracy in terms of wool quality, we have now incorporated new techniques for grading of wool quality to meet our customers needs. This is a help in wool grading, not a change in our breeding goal which remains focused on furskins. We perform individual phenotypic scoring of all

Perfect weekend!

We have spent the weekend at  Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. One of the premium events of it's kind in the U.S. A "must attend" if you breed sheep and produce fiberrelated items. Also a weekend retreat for knitters, spinners, and other fiberartists. Our Gotlands experience an increasing interest and we are happy to meet so many people that want to raise them or use their fiber. Contact us if you want to incorporate our performance recorded Gotland genetics in your flock. See you next year!
