Sheep are sheared and the fleece is washed and dried by hand. Then the wool is hand spun and knitted into the garment. Fingerless mittens keep hands warm while fingers are free. The wool is soft to the touch and not itchy at all. Please note: Shetland Wool has inherent variations so each one is unique.
t takes a month in the spring to shear the sheep. It takes several days to laboriously wash and dry the fleece. Each ball of yarn takes an hour or more to spin from the dried fleece. The garments take 3 to 8 hours to knit each piece by hand. All animals are cared for with love and all items are made with care at the farm by Don and Peggy McCallie personally.
