Gotland Sheep are known for their silky and lustrous wool. Originating in Sweden, the breed boasts supremely soft sheepskin pelts, which are of a curly fleece and often used for interior design.
Subtle color variation makes each pelt outstandingly unique. This soft specimen boasts a cool charcoal brown coloration with hints of warm brown and silver.

Shepherds Craft Farm in Whitefield, Maine, is run by Laurel Banks. By operating the farm using rotational grazing practices, Laurel has created a grass-based and sustainable system with benefits that include breed integrity and enriched earth.
Trusty Border Collies named Lil and Iris move the sheep to a new pasture daily while two Great Pyrenees guard the flock.
The sheep are integral players in their neighborhood mowing fields for Sheepscot General Store and providing milk for Fuzzy Udder Creamery. Visit the farm in March during Maine Maple Sunday activities - there's a hay ride and sugar shack tour for all to enjoy!
