An hour and 40 minutes into the cracked high desert northeast of Bend, eight miles past the barely recognizable "town" of Antelope, the Imperial Stock Ranch was established in 1871 and quickly developed into one of the principal sheep ranches in the nation.

Now, the ranch is a window into the rich history of the west. See this video detailing the journey of the wool from the backs of the sheep right here in Central Oregon, to gaudy Sochi sweaters!
