Sheep are shrinking?! What the Dickens. IS there no END to this madness in the world right now?!
With sheep shrinking wool shortages will become common, knitting will become a dark art, practicsed underground by knitting junkies looking for their next hit of wool to weave;, needle abuse will have a whole new meaning; nice thick jumpers to keep out the cold will become mythical, like a golden fleece, and we'll all be freezing.
Or maybe we won't, who knows.
