North Ronaldsay sheep are one of the ancient Northern Short-tailed breeds, and their direct ancestors are believed to have lived on islands in the North Atlantic for 5,000 years. These are the sheep known as seaweed-eaters (Shetlands, close relatives, also occasionally do, but North Ronaldsays have adapted fully to the diet). This discussion covers what we can discern about their history, their current living conditions, and their wool.

Printed document plus free digital version; 8x8" publication. This document contains theory and practical knowledge for fiber arts enthusiasts of all skill levels. The handouts are heavily illustrated.
