Ornament of the Week---Baa Baa Black Sheep

Diminutive ornaments are made of wood and wool

Caused by a recessive gene, black-woolen sheep are rarities of the flock. They are considered less valuable by breeders because their wool cannot be dyed and they stand out from the rest of the herd.
Historically, the term 'black sheep' was synonymous  with outcasts, or those different from the norm. Nowadays, the term has evolved into a symbol of pride, recognizing a person who stands out from the crowd; unique and nonconforming.
Visit our International Christmas Shop and pick up this sweet, tiny ornament for the black sheep in your life.
Available in limited quantities.
