"I'm delicious! My meat can be roasted, stewed, minced and made into pies, fried or boiled. My feet can be used to create gelatine, and my brain can be fried and consumed as well.

My wool is great for being spun and used in knitting or making various fabrics, and my skin is great to sleep on!"

"I am also very popular with Vikings"

Its wool was used in clothing, sailmaking, tentmaking, felting amongst others. Its meat was one of the more common meats eaten by medieval people. Sheep milk was also used to make cheese.
