Michels Mountain Sheep

Michels Mountain Sheep Rugged Icelandic Sheep blended with the temperament of East Friesian Sheep. The three generation process creating a Michels Mountain Sheep. This page is here to share our adventure in the world of sheep.

We have studied sheep from all over the world. There are hundreds of breeds, with terrific diversity. Our goal is to create a very hardy breed of sheep that has some very specific attributes. We are creating a milking breed while blending the #1 sheep milk producer, the East Friesian, with the #4 milk producer, the Icelandic. Both have been used for dairy production for over 1,400 years!

The Journey from Sheep to Garment

Check this out! A huge thankyou to Shiree Beckwith for creating such a fantastic video documentary of the process to take Steele's wool from the raw sheared fiber to a finished Cardigan Sweater! We have tried to put our Michels Mountain Sheep fleece into the hands of spinners/knitters so that we can see great products from our sheep's fiber. Shiree has taken it to another level, by doing this video documentary of the process. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the show!

Michels Mountain Sheep - Montana

The other day we had a wonderful opportunity to share our sheep with fiber artist Shiree Beckwith from Rehash Fiber. She made this video explaining our breeding program, and the fiber that we produce. It's a true joy to share our sheep with others, as they have been such a blessing to us. Grab a cup of coffee and watch her video. Shiree gives you an up close look at Michels Mountain Sheep. #RehashFiber #MichelsMountainSheep
