 Finnsheep, or Finnish Landrace, are a breed of sheep native to Finland and first

 introduced into the United States in 1968. Related to other short-tailed

 Scandinavian sheep, Finns are highly prized for their prolificacy, often having three

 or more lambs every six to seven months. Known for their mothering ability and ample

 milk supply, Finn ewes can often raise four to five lambs to weaning age. Ewes and

 rams are aggressive breeders  and mature as early as four to eight months of age.


 These good natured sheep produce a soft, lustrous fleece which is used by  handspinners and felters to produce wonderful,

 warm, wool garments and accessories.
