I'm so lucky to have this wool coat!
― Picture quote, Wild World

My clothes will soak up the sun until they're warm and fluffy. So luxurious!
― Vesta, New Leaf

Vesta (メリヤス, Meriyasu?, Malhas) is a normal sheep in Animal Crossing series that appears in all versions of the Animal Crossing video games. Her name comes from the piece of clothing vest, an item of clothing sometimes made out of the wool of sheep, her species, and possibly the Roman goddess of the hearth, Vesta, though this may be a coincidence. Her Japanese name, meriyasu, means "knitting". Her initial phrase, baaaffo is a combination of the word baa, a word used to imitate the bleating of sheep, and the word "boffo", which as an adjective, means "very successful" or "wholeheartedly commendatory". She has the fashion hobby.


Vesta in Animal Crossing

Vesta is a Scottish Blackface sheep with cream colored wool, a dark navy blue face with glowing white eyes and a smiling mouth. Her arms and legs are navy blue with melon-pink hooves, her horns are striped with orange and yellow. Just like all other sheep in the Animal Crossing series before New Horizons, Vesta wears a scarf instead of a shirt. However, in New Horizons, she wears the Hand-Knit Tank.


Below is a brief description of the normal personality. For more information, click here.

Vesta has a normal personality, and frequently acts kind towards the player. Normal villagers generally get along well with lazy, peppy, smug, snooty and other normal villagers. Vesta may conflict with cranky and sisterly villagers. As a normal villager, Vesta will usually wake up at 6:00 am and is easier to befriend than most. Both normal and peppy villagers reference an unseen friend known as Moppina.


Vesta has a little house with a sewing machine and a few clothes set on the left side of her house. She has a Turntable that plays K.K. Steppe, except in New Horizons where she plays Forest Life instead. Her carpet is Backyard Lawn Flooring, and her wallpaper is Ranch Wallpaper.

In New Horizons, her house is actually a laundromat.

Pocket Camp

Vesta was added to Pocket Camp in the December 21, 2017 update.

Vesta's preferred theme is rustic, and she primarily gives paper as a reward. Her profile reads:

❝ If you're having trouble sleeping, Vesta will always let you count her. Sure, she's only one sheep, but you can count her over and over until it works.❞
