Seaweed Loving Sheep


Do you love Seaweed? Did you know that there are sheep who do? Todays update is all about a very special rare breed sheep on the Scottish Isle of North Ronaldsay. I had heard from them before but never had the opportunity to feel their fleece until my fabulous sis in law Maggie, came back from an awesome Scottish Isle trip, and risked life and limb, brought some with her to give to me. That was the start of the quest to get more ;-)

The North Ronaldsay Sheep are the only animals in the world, aside from a certain Galapagon lizard, to be able to subsist entirely on seaweed, leading to its nickname ‘seaweed sheep’. The breed is thought to be over 5000 years old. The breed is farmed within the Northern Ronaldsay Islands, Orkney and kept nearby the seashore for most of the year. In 1832 the Laird of North Ronaldsay decided that his pastureland should not be wasted on native sheep and a dyke was built round the island to keep them on the shore and off the land. It was most probably this separation that resulted in the preservation of the North Ronaldsay, as it prevented cross breeding which had been the downfall of other Orkney sheep.

The North Ronaldsay is one of the Northern Shorttailed primitive group of breeds that also includes the Manx Loghtan, Soay, Shetland and Icelandic . The North Ronaldsay is still mainly found on its native island, the northernmost of the Orkneys. The sheep keeping system on North Ronaldsay is unique and involves a stone wall which keeps the sheep on the seashore and away from the cultivated land for most of the year. This wall was built in 1832 and since then the breed has evolved to survive primarily on seaweed. The sheep live on the seashore most of the year around and are only brought onto the better land for lambing.
The North Ronaldsay is one of group of primitive Northern Short-tailed sheep and represents a very early stage in the evolution of domestic sheep. DNA studies have shown a close relationship to sheep found in the Stone Age village of Skara Brae on mainland Orkney, which dates from 3000 BC. In 1832 a wall was built around their native island to confine the animals to the foreshore for most of the year in order to conserve the inland grazing. Since then the breed has developed its distinctive metabolism due to its diet of seaweed, which also renders it susceptible to copper poisoning under standard sheep management systems. North Ronaldsays are very sensitive to copper and will die of copper toxicity if put on the wrong type of grazing. This is due to their seaweed diet and the unique metabolism they have evolved. They should not be fed commercial sheep mixes as despite the label saying “No Added Copper” the normal ingredients used will often have a background level high enough to be toxic (ten parts per million is too high). The North Ronaldsay is capable of surving on less than larger breeds and is an active browser, used to ranging over long distances in search of food.



Colours of their fleece are variable: including white, various shades of grey, black and moorit (deep brown). The double fleece has coarse outer guard hairs and a fine soft inner coat. I have never ever felt and dyed something as extraordinary as this sheeps fleece. It is springy, almost feels moist even after its scouring and washing. It almost feels lkike it resists the dye when you pour the pigments on and everything immediately flows to the bottom, leaving the top layer of the fibre springy and almost without dye. At least, that is what appears to happen…it takes the dye beautifully and retains its springy texture and openness.
 
Before dyeing and spinning though was the rather painful process of getting rid of the guardhairs ! Here’s a view of the raw fleece :
After all of the cleaning and carding you get what I am offering you today !
It is a dream to spin and work with. You can make a yarn that is strong and still soft to wear. It is very very special ! There are only about 600 of these seaweed sheep left in the world. Only through our effort of conservation of the environment and conservation through appreciation of this rare breed by spinning and knitting its fleece, can we hold on to one of the oldest and most special breeds in the world alive today.


There is a documentary about the island with its seaweed eating sheep on youtube for you to see.  It shows you what the island looks like, the important wild life : Seals ! (warning ! Cute overload !) bird populations and ofcourse its most famous inhabitants:" the seaweed sheep ! (another cute overload ! @ 16:50 mins in) :  
 
Enjoy!
 
Please understand that I do not have a lot of stock of this exceptional rare breed fibre. Do not wait too long to  pounce on this weeks update to avoid disappointment and ..please let me know if you would be interested in more, so I can start working towards getting a bit  of this wonderful special fibre in and making it ready for your amazing spinning experience.
 
BTW, if you are wondering about the colourway names of this Scottish update: yes....they are Outlander inspired, thanks to Diana Gabaldon and the new TV series of her books .

Spinning a yarn..and a suprise !



A week goes by in one breath..it seems. Especially this one, when there were so many custom orders to dye, spin and ply. And especially , when there are fine lace weight yarns on the menu.. it takes time..lots of time ..just to ply a lace weight yarn with meters and meters and meters , time just seems to fly by while the bobbin seems to stand still…Einstein would have agreed with me that time is even more relative while spinning laceweight…lol
 
This week has been filled with spinning yarns and so it would only seem fair to immerse you with some of my yarns this week: Bunny Mink 3 ply. The softest most lush yarn I have on offer at the moment with an amazing yardage/meterage of 300 meters/50 grams.
 
It is a comparable 3 ply and out of this world soft and light. I have spun it without a tight twist and therefore e leaving it soft and drapey and lush. The tendency when spinning short fibres and lace is to add heaps and heaps of twist..spinning on a high ratio….the more twist you add the more you are adding harshness to the finished yarn..balance is the magic word: to add just enough twist to hold all the fibres together and yet let the finished yarn ooze with the softness it deserves.
 
 
Also, back on the menu because of high demand: Badges !!! Just email/message me the nr and the quantity you were after !
 

Surprise !!!!!

 
For those of you after some fibre to spin: well..I wanted to offer you something special and what better way than to surprise you!  I will send you a surpise pack of two tops normally $24 each and a surprise !!!  for the amazing price of $39+postage ! Just mention SURPRISE and how many you would like, YOur fav colours (I will do my best to make you happy ! )
 
 
Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time if you have any questions okay?

Magical Mythical Spinning



Today I want to offer you something so special and so amazing it is hard to keep from squee’ing and excitingly jumping up and down. It is also hard to put my Tibetan support spindle down spinning our new IxCHeL blend: Bunny Bison Bliss Tops. This special IxCHeL blend is very special and close to my heart.

The American Bison,, so great that the scientific name for them is Bison bison, is the largest land animal currently living in the Americas and Australia ! (yes you heard right, there are bison in Australia! See this website for more information: http://www.dhtc.com.au/bison.php ) .

Enormous herds of bison once occupied the American Great Plains, and were critically important to Native American Plains tribes as sources of meat, hides, horn, bone and sinew. American Bison were hunted close to extinction by white settlers and the American military during the western migration, but they were given protected status and the population rebounded in the second half of the 20th century.

There are now substantial populations living in the United States and Canada; all the wild-ranging herds are found in state, provincial and national parks. In addition, there are several herds owned by private farmers and even some in Australia !



socialising with the Bison (Dungong Farm NSW)

As a spinner and weaver I love to play and experiment with all sorts of fibres and the Bison being so close to my heart and heritage, I could not resist to try and design a blend that would not only do it justice but also excel in its beauty, handle and all over amazing way to spin and use in our fibre art.

It has the following ingredients: Superfine 17micron merino, angora bunny , Bison, Baby Camel, cashmere and tencel. It spins like a dream!

I have managed to spin so fine on my Tibetan Spindle with that blend that it is finer than sewing thread! More importantly, the tops are extremely easy to draft even without pre drafting : it is like butter in your hands so to speak. It holds together beautifully while still open and super super soft. Especially when spinning with a support spindle it is very important to have a very fluffy open easy to draft top to work with.

I found that spinning on the support spindles that I prefer to spin with batts or fauxlags. Well, that time has definitely gone! I LOVE spinning with the Bunny Bison Bliss tops! Try it and you will never ever look back. This week I have the natural beauty of the bunny bison bliss tops on offer and some hand dyed bunny bison bliss tops as well. And, there is a special for this weekend only~!!! Order on Friday and Saturday and you .....WILL GET A SPECIAL GIFT :-)

”I was here before you”…
