Lizzy is a friendly little ewe who has a beautiful light gray fleece with white.  The wool is on the soft end of the Shetland breed.  Very pretty fleece.
Welcome to the Colorful World of Shetland Sheep!
Shetland wool has one of the widest ranges of colors of any breed, with 11 main colors ranging from white to gray to black and from light brown, reddish brown to dark brown. Shetland wool dyes beautifully.
The wool is soft, fine, silky, and durable and a delight to spin, knit or crochet. Shetland wool can be spun fine enough to make a shawl that can be drawn through a wedding ring! You can also use this wool for wet felting, needle felting, and other arts and crafts. 
This fleece Raw unwashed ready for you to scour your favorite way.  I washed a sample of this fleece with Unicorn Power Scour and it came out soft and beautiful. See pictures of Before and After.
