Peter, the wether from whom this Spoiled Sheep yarn comes.

Pete was a natural colored Corriedale/Rambouillet cross with gorgeous dark fleece. He is the son of Eiryn, and the twin brother of Penelope, two other sheep in the Rose Butte flock. He was a very handsome sheep, and his fleece is very soft with a lovely crimp and cocoa color.

"Why is our flock Spoiled? We shear the flock every year at the beginning of summer, for their greatest comfort during both the hot and cold seasons of the year. They enjoy full access to pasture year-round and are fed alfalfa hay grown in our own field during the winter. Fresh spring water flows freely into their trough, ensuring a constant supply of clean water. Their barn is cooled with a misting system and fan during the heat of the summer, and in winter is warmly bedded with straw. Treats from the garden are always a big hit. Last but certainly not least, they are guarded around the clock by our loving and dedicated Livestock Guardian Dog team. It's a good life for our sheep - and we think it shows in the beauty and quality of our yarn and fleece." - Spoiled Sheep Yarn
