A North Ronaldsay Yarn
the sheep, their wool and their island

Sheep have been living on North Ronaldsay ever since the last Ice Age, and have remained little changed over the past 5,000 years. In the Nineteenth Century a dyke (wall) was built round the island keeping the sheep on the shore and leaving the good land for cattle and crops. This booklet explains the importance of these sheep to both the island community and to the wider world. It gives a flavour of life on the island, and shows how the fleece of these rare breed sheep is spun on the island into yarn.

24 pages, A5, full colour throughout.
