Shetland sheep are native to the Scottish Shetland Isles.

Wild Flower Farm sells Shetland wool and garb in many styles and colors.


Shetlands are small but majestic in stature. As such, they are not a meat

sheep, they are bred solely for their luxurious wool. Tourists get to enjoy feeding and petting these adorable little critters.


Wool

All of our sheep are sheared by hand with scissors. The fleece is then hand washed and spread out to dry. Peggy then spins the wool on a wooden spinning wheel.
