Ferguson (AKA "Fergus") joined the farm (and our family) in 2015. All of the sheep in our spinner's flock are from Michigan farms and Fergus comes from Iron Wheel Farm in Beaverton, MI. Finnsheep are known as "The Friendly Sheep" and Fergus is a good ambassador of his breed. His diminutive stature and friendly, curious disposition make him a favorite of farm visitors. When Fergus was younger, his wool fleece was jet black, but now that he's getting older, his wool has started to silver. His wool is fine and felts easily. It's also next-to-the-skin soft and is ideal for scarves or sweaters.
Even though he's small in stature, each year Fergus grows lots of soft, fine black wool. We shear Fergus yearly and his locks are often 6" in length when sheared. His wool is quite fine and yarn spun from his wool is next-to-the-skin soft. When spun into yarn, using a woolen spun technique, his wool has beautiful loft and bounce.
