Gilbert's California Red Wool Yarn! (rare sheep)
Gilbert's California Red Wool Yarn! (rare sheep)

Gilbert is a new member of our flock who arrived with 4 little Shetland sheep. Their owner is a good friend of ours and needed the sheep to have a good forever home. SO, here they are!

The little family of sheep includes Gilbert; Ilse; Rose; Arthur and Charlie. Gilbert and Charlie love a good scratch and lots of treats. The others are a little shy but since they are all only a year old, we'll 'get' them! ha! You can read more about them on our meet the sheep pages.

Gilbert is what I consider to be a 'rare' sheep. We rarely see California Red Sheep-or at least I haven't here in WI.

They are a breed of sheep that was developed in the US and are very close relatives to the Tunis sheep. Gilbert has the best personality. Very much like my little Romney Piper- just skipping through the alfalfa of life!

I spun his yarn into a 2 ply yarn. You can see the little variations of the natural color. The sheep are born red and as they age the fleece fades to a light red/oatmeal color. They keep the dark red faces and legs.

We love Gilbert and his happy shows up in his yarn!

Skeins include 150 yards/4 ounces each
