Welcome to the world of the wonderful Icelandic Sheep!  With all they have to offer, this is a sheep that is really exciting. Easy to keep, hardy and prolific, the Icelandic Sheep offers the shepherd, both new and old, a dream come true.

These primitive sheep have magnificent fleeces, and incredible range of colors and patterns, wonderful mothering abilities, great dairy potential, and unusual intelligence. 

It is possible for them to have triplets and quadruplets and mother them without assistance.
