Publicly-owned sheep provide a local way to stay warm this winter

Residents of Holt can combat the harsh winter conditions with local wool products, thanks to the publicly-owned sheep at Delhi Township’s Wastewater Treatment Plant. When the sheep were first purchased they were intended to graze on a grassy lot across the street from the wastewater treatment plant. Then members of the Delhi Department of Public Services came up with the idea to use the sheep wool to keep local citizens warm. Tristan Knowlton, Asset Management Specialist for Delhi Township, said “It tends to be people looking for gifts with a local connection during winter.”

Gloves, hats, and socks are for sale ranging from $12-$24. Roving and yarn are also for sale.
