Located in Petaluma, CA, Pont Family Farm raises Gotland sheep, a breed from Sweden noted for their long, soft, and lustrous fiber.  They are light grey (really salt and pepper) with natural variation over the body. The fleece is noted for long staple length and soft fiber favored in Sweden where the breed was developed. The lambs are born black and lighten up in the first few months of life.
