A comic-satiric fable about the blessing of anonymity and the pitfalls of fame. Argyle the sheep finds comfort in belonging but also requires time away from the flock. After his white wool changes into colorful stripes--caused by devouring some delicious flowers--his enterprising owners use his unique fleece not only to create Scotland's first pair of plaid socks but also to establish a prosperous business. But fame is fleeting.
