A chance encounter with two Shetland sheep ewes named Freckles and Frances resulted in our current small flock of 36. 

From our first cozy home--the  tinshack, nestled on our farm in Minnesota's Central Woodlands in the company of our flock of Shetland sheep, we embarked on a journey that now includes wool, yarn and a little yarn shop on Main Street Isle, Minnesota.
