Flecket Friday Cheeriness!

Hello everyone, happy Friday! Today we thought we’d share some cute pictures from one of our crofters.

Lambing season is in full swing now and the fields are filled with bouncy little lambs, Chris Dyer has Garths Croft in Bressay and he has lots of beautiful coloured and flecket Shetland Sheep (the kind of wool that ends up in Supreme Jumper Weight, Supreme Lace and Shetland Heritage Naturals) and he’s been sharing some lovely pictures over on their Instagram so we asked Chris if we could share some here:

Aren’t they so cute? Chris also made a video with a virtual tour of his croft which you can see on youtube here as part of the I Thought I Knew How podcasts online international fiber festival.

While everything is in lockdown it’s important to remember those things that carry on and in agriculture, lambing is one of those things that will happen no matter what! And with very cute results.. So follow Chris’ Instagram and follow along the lambing and crofting journey if you find it interesting, happy knitting!

    Shetland sheep are so tiny – but it must be inversely related to their adorableness!
