At Tweedside Farm Gotlands, we chose the Swedish breed of Gotland sheep due to their lustrous long-wool fleece, coupled with their sweet & affectionate nature, and friendly sized frame.
Knitters & Hand-Spinners: We sell our own line of lustrous Gotland yarn in shades of silver, charcoal & black, and for the hand spinners…we produce quality fleeces and roving.
Breeding stock: we breed for the classic Swedish silver-grey, and our lambs range between 93% to 100% Gotland in the upbreeding program. All have been genetically tested for scrapie susceptibility and are either QR or RR (not QQ); the R has shown to be scrapie resistant.
