Gotland Sheep - Sustainably Raised at ARAN Farms
What are Gotland Sheep?
The Gotland Sheep is a landrace breed of Northern Short-Tailed sheep that have their origins in the European Karakul, Romanov and Gute sheep breeds. The Vikings took the medium-sized animals on their ships to supply meat, milk and wool. They are a polled (no horns) breed, have fine-grained meat and lustrous wool that falls in ringlets and is prized by hand spinners. The lambs are born with black wool, which gradually silvers out to a range of grey. Hardy and curious, they fit in well with our Farm's ideals.
