Awassi and Icelandic Homestead Sheep
At Willowdale Ecofarm in Lewisburg, Ohio, we raise Icelandic and Awassi sheep.
Icelandic Sheep are known as a 3-purpose sheep, famous for producing milk, wool and meat alike, making them a perfect sheep for homesteaders and spinners looking for a small flock that can meet all their needs. Icelandic sheep come in many gorgeous colors, so in a small flock you can have multiple colors of natural wool to choose from, making Icelandic wool a special delight for spinners and knitters.
Awassi sheep are a middle eastern breed of fat-tailed sheep. They’re one of the top dairy sheep breeds in the world, but they are also a 3-purpose sheep, having a very long coat of thick but soft carpet wool and producing the fat-tail lambs that are desired all over the world. Awassi are a very hardy breed, resistant to parasites and comfortable in all climates, from New Mexico to Wisconsin. They’re also curious and smart, and so they’re easy to work with.
