Gotland sheep produce very fine and particularly warm wool in shades from silver to charcoal. The yarn is remarkably light when made up, has a wonderful lustre and takes dye beautifully. Founder of the company, Sue Blacker, owns a flock of Gotland sheep and every batch of their Gotland yarn includes a small amount from Sue’s Cornish flock. Gotland sheep - like the fibre - are rather special! Sue believes that they are “an extremely intelligent sheep, with a sense of humour and mischief.”
