The Gotland breed is believed to have been established on the Swedish island of Gotland by the Vikings who crossed the native Swedish Gute sheep with Karakul and Romanov sheep brought back from expeditions deep into Russia. The Vikings used these sheep to support their ship crew with meat and skins along their travel route. The breed may have contributed therefore to other northern short tailed breeds such as Finn, Shetland and Icelandic.
The approximate size of the Gotland sheepskin is 90cm x 80cm
