A chance encounter with two Shetland sheep ewes named Freckles and Frances (who still graze at Tinshack Co. Farm) resulted in our current small flock of 29. 

Our Flock

Tinshack Co. offers a wide range of naturally colored 100% Shetland wool roving and yarns from our flock.  Additionally, we offer hand knit warm gear and accessories made from our yarn.

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.
