Margaret, the other half owner of the Leafhaven Shetlands flock, lives miles away in the big city, and must content herself with playing with fleece and fabric between visits with the sheep. She does the sewing and linings on the purses, dyes fleece for Linda's needlefelting, occasionally spins, and enjoys combing thrift shops for fabrics, sweaters, blankets and other treasures to recycle into Cloverleaf fibre art projects.

Our flock of Shetland sheep are a source of endless delight and entertainment as well as lovely fleeces in many colours. The two guardian llamas also contribute fibre for felts and yarn.
