The Ram’s Characteristics and Contributions to the Scottish and Irish Economy
Rams are known to be strong, stubborn, and protective. When you get on their bad side, they persistently ram into you. Humans also exhibit this kind of behavior when using a battering ram during war. Many men of honor might desire to acquire these attributes of the ram: strength, protectiveness, and persistence.
Rams, of course, are male sheep. Sheep continue to be an important part of Scottish and Irish economy. Not long ago, spinning and knitting were a vital part of the average Scot’s income. All the kids were taught to knit from a very young age. They would knit jumpers and accessories in order to contribute to the family’s income. This makes the ram an important animal to many families in the recent past. The rams contributed a lot in terms of reproduction to make lambs, lamb haggis, and protection of the flock. Thank the next ram you see at the Highland Games! (We all know the sheep herding demonstrations are the funnest part of Highland Games.)
Scotland continues to provide excellent quality wool goods to luxury brands, as well as our own company: The Celtic Croft. Of course, we can’t forget that the kilt is traditionally made from wool. The Celtic Croft continues to carry kilts made of Scottish milled wool tartan. We also carry tweed vests, jackets, and hats straight from Scotland! The ram is definitely vital to our company as kilt makers. This bracelet honors this fundamental animal.
