Registered, colored Finnsheep for sale. Friendly, prolific and easy to handle, Finnsheep are the perfect backyard flock. Ram lambs and ewe lambs available in black and grey, also in the unusual "Badger-faced" color pattern. Sweetland Hill Farm has 20 years experience raising Finnsheep. They are by far, the friendliest sheep available.
The wool is soft and lustrous with a low grease content, making scouring much easier that other breeds. It is perfect for dyeing, handspinning and felting. The softness makes it good for fine garments which can be worn next to the skin.
Finnsheep are prolific averaging twins or triplets for their first lambing with increasing birth litters to quads and even quints for their 4th or 5th lambing. They have easy lambing traits with excellent mothering instincts.
Market lambs grow to 80-100 pounds liveweight in 6-8 months, producing lean, mild flavored meat.
