Some of you have likely heard by now our story of The Accidental Shepherd. In short, it goes like this:
We got sheep. By accident.
Happily, we have fallen quite in love with these sweet, emotive creatures and have since expanded our flock.
On purpose this time.
Icelandic are an ancient breed of sheep from (you guessed it) Iceland. They are small and hardy and tri-purpose - meaning they can be used for meat, milk and wool.
We have not yet embarked on the adventure of removing the wool, but we'll let you know how it goes. I have a sneaking suspicion there will be a steep, and possibly hilarious, learning curve.
