This Gotland cross 100% wool lace weight yarn is just waiting to be a cozy blanket or sweater. Soft, lustrous, and sustainable, this yarn is perfect for your next project. These limited edition Spoiled Sheep yarns are sourced locally from Rose Butte Ranch, and each is crafted from the fleece of an individual sheep, making each skein truly unique.
Thor was a handsome Gotland cross wether with truly gorgeous steel grey lustrous fleece. Thor was the "bellwether" - the lead sheep of the flock. He was loving and smart, and he loved lambs - when Nell was in labor he laid as close as he could near the paddock fence so he could watch over her. If you are lucky enough to own some of Thor's beautiful yarn we hope it will bring you the same joy that Thor brought to Rose Butte Ranch.
"Why is our flock Spoiled? We shear the flock every year at the beginning of summer, for their greatest comfort during both the hot and cold seasons of the year. They enjoy full access to pasture year-round and are fed alfalfa hay grown in our own field during the winter. Fresh spring water flows freely into their trough, ensuring a constant supply of clean water. Their barn is cooled with a misting system and fan during the heat of the summer, and in winter is warmly bedded with straw. Treats from the garden are always a big hit. Last but certainly not least, they are guarded around the clock by our loving and dedicated Livestock Guardian Dog team. It's a good life for our sheep - and we think it shows in the beauty and quality of our yarn and fleece." - Spoiled Sheep Yarn
