Ewe is fluffy, not fat.

At least that's the story we're sticking to.  I caught the broad side of the blimpos at the feed trough - Icelandics are quite hilarious-looking, I think - zoftic bodies with long, dual-fiber coats on top of tiny little twig legs.  I am actually quite enamored of them.

Sweet Linden on the left, feisty Juno on the right.

    Beautiful looking sheep.
    I'm thinking, there's some nice looking yarn!!!!
    What are your plans with this up and coming yarn?

    1. Sandy - I do like working with Icelandic yarn - although I have to deal with the 20+ fleeces I have amassed the last four years first! It's on the list!

  2. Oh my word, I just want to bury myself in those luxurious long locks. I cant wait, I cant wait!! Should I be offended that their hairstyle is better than mine?

    1. Jane - You can snorgle Linden for hours! (Stealing thecrazysheeplady's apt sheep verb). Believe me, it only looks nice at a distance! I hate to think what's embedded in that wool....

  5. They kinda remind me of the way I look in my biggest, warmest down jacket. Who can tell what's under all that?? (Waddle, waddle, waddle.)

  6. It's so FLUFFY!!!!
    You know, you really need to post more pictures of these fur (fleece) balls. We don't have many sheep around here and their fleece looks so beautiful.

    1. Carolyn - I wish I could take a video of Juno (the gray/black one) leaping into the air when breakfast arrives - it just doesn't look possible! I will post more pictures, now that I have my fab camera.

  9. I love this breed of sheep. If I had life to live over again, I would definitely raise some, but as I cannot shear, spin or knit, my little meaty sheep will have to suffice.
